Pros:
Cons:

Sails well in all types of seas. Slightly underpowered,but will still hold 5.5 knots heading into the wind and swell. Inside, the forward area was nice, but I reengineered it so that now we have a V sitting area, a dining area, and a huge V berth sleeping area, making it much nicer than the original design. Most necessary areas are fairly easy to get to, especially the engine with the cockpit lid. Do, however, put weatherstripping on the inside of this lid. Again a solid, comfortable boat to be offshore on.
The Full batten main has added much to the performance of the boat.

Pros:
Cons:

I don't have a lot of off-shore experance, however in winds 25kts. or less she sails wonderfuly. She likes to take a reef in the full roach main around 12-14kts.In light air she always moves close to wind speed. It takes about 8-10kts apparent to push you along at hull speed(7.22kts).
Below is well lit with the large ports, however they do leak. The births are a little tight for two people. Privet head and birth to port, the nav. station is large. As is the galey to starbord.
Overall a nice boat in the mid-30ft. range. I am very satified.

Pros:
Cons:

Fast unless you're beating through a heavy chop wherein she gets pushed around a bit. Have often made 10.5 knots surfing downwind. Cockpit is too large for offshore cruising. I converted salon doors to bin boards for safety. I have a jack stay which basically ruins any chance for decent hard dink storage area since the mainsheet traveler won't permit one aft of the mast. Cabin is comfortable for weekend cruising but wastes space for the long distance cruiser. Nav table is small but workable. Engine compartment is sizable. Wheel steering is nice but restricts helmsman from easily reaching sheet winches. Sandwich construction has usual issues if not properly cared for. Am thinking of new standing rigging soon, and what I may do to beef up the various chain plates; especially at the stem which appears least hearty.

Pros:
Cons:

On a lancer 36, the roof of the cabin where the mast sits, is depressed about 1/2 inch. Has anyone tackeled this problem. I am thinking of a new keel stepped mast,putting it through the deck and into the keel . Has any one tackeled such a project.
