owners. I recently walked thru a 105mc. As much as I love the layout I just don't know if I would feel comfortable taking her beyond sight of land. I keep reading that the 3000 has the most bridgedeck clearance. Can anyone elaborate on more attributes or differences between the 3000 or 3200 vs the newer models, please?
seemed to flex, a lot. This 105 has a good deal of deferred maintenance
going on, so I cannot form an accurate opinon.
Also, it seemed the hull
and sole was about a 1/4". It just felt so flimsy.
The bulkhead where the mast
attaches seems solid, but the rest made me squirm a little.
Knowing the success and contentment CatnAbout (3000) has mentioned, per L38, it makes me wonder if the older models are better built. I am aware of the Smith family
making the transataltic. I also know a couple who also made that trip, who were eager to rid of their 105.
One day I hope to attain an affordable cat. The Prout Quests (31/33) have been on my radar
, but the older gems sure look good (speed and layout) if the build quality is better than the new models or reinforcements can be made.
So opinions please!
