welcome to the Santana family! i have one as well, 2023c. apparently those boats dont make it to far from Cali because when people ask what boat it is they say seriously a Schock on the east coast
?? its a great boat and im sure you will enjoy it! we keep ours wet for about 7 months out of the year. as far as the mast is concerned if you are only cruising i wouldnt worry too much about it . we have the standard mast and it gets plenty windy here in NJ so that is never a cause for concern. some modifications you might consider are doing away with the roller boom for one and there is a bunch of others i have done that ill be happy to respond too, just too much to list here. that being said about the reefing, since it was set to roll, there is no attachtment points for reefing lines on the boom, you will have to add cleats
or cams, im sure reefing the way i did led to the demise of my old main. feel free to send a message my way ! ps, heres the old and new sail. also, there was some cracking around non structural points in the cabin
that i adressed Schock about that apparently has only happened to me, looking to just be the white speckle spray on the interior
, but something too watch out for.
