The Cavalier 39 has turned out to be an excellent choice, we've done a lot of upgrades on her since owning her but she sails
well and has handled some heavy seas well. She's admired by others and is well designed and set out.
Last haul out
we dealt with her osmosis(around 60 small blisters
which we ground out and filled with layers of glass... simple enough)
We've rewired the boat, rerigged, repowered (with a Beta 43) and repainted topsides so a lot of time and energy but she's a great boat. Have a look at the facebook site we run for her it details a lot of the work
done and many trips taken.
