I have owned and completely rebuilt all systems on a 1984 C&C 43" Landfall (hull #5). I have found the vessel to be well built originally and I am happy to answer any specific questions that interested persons might have. I have been sailing for almost 20 years and this is my third rebuild experience, which has been completed over the last three years with the boat remaining functional and in the water (except for annual hauls) during that time.

Pros:
Cons:

We bought our Com Pac 23 with the intention of trailering it to various destinations, and it has proven very good for that. It does trailer easily, but getting the stick up or down and rigging the boat is about a 2 hour process.

It is comfortable for 2 persons for 2 nights--after that, it starts to feel real cramped. It is easy to singlehand but it doesn't point worth a darn due to the shallow keel. The upside of that is that you can go nearly anywhere. A good choice for the trailering sailor.

I love my S2 11.0. I have sailed her in Lke Michigan for the past eigth years. She is very sturdy and sail great into the wind. I have not had any major problems since purchasing her eight years ago. A great boat.

Pros:
Cons:

The O'Day 192 appears to be a cross between a Catalina Capri 18 and a Precision 18; all three are quite similar, so I think its a matter of which factory you live closer to more than any other factor re the Catalina C18 and Precision 18, both of which are still in production. Although the O'Day has been out of production for awhile, they are fairly common in the Northeast because the factory was in Fall River, MA. All three of these weekenders are basically protected (i.e., flat) water boats, and don't like too much chop or wind > 15 kts. But to me they are a big cut above daysailors (e.g., the O'Day 17)because of the extra stability of ballasted shoal-draft keel and relatively spacious interiors, where there is ample room to throw just about everything two adults could need for an overnight trip. Accessories like nav lights, ice chests, porta-potties and radios are common in used boats. Parts are still available for O'Day (and Pearson) sailboats from D&R Marine, Assonet, MA (508) 644-3001.
All three of these weekenders offer inexpensive and relatively effortless sailing (I keep mine on a mooring all summer). Though they don't point as well as a deep fin-keel racer, they are perfectly adequate for daysailing and weekending. Upwind the O'Day 192 is quick and light on the helm; downwind stability is good, and you can retract the centerboard if performance-minded. I added a nice Garhauer vang (from D&R Marine) that is really essential because there is no traveler, at about half the cost of the same type of vang offered by West Marine. Mine also came with a 2-stroke 4HP kicker which gets used periodically for negotiating narrow channels under bridges when the wind is on the nose, and is quite adequate (going to a 2-stroke 6HP of the same brand weighs twice as much). I've sailed my O'Day 192 in winds up to 15 kts and 3-foot swells by myself with the main and lapper jib, but the ride was quite "busy". Interestingly enough the O'Day 192 bow tends to bob up and down in swells, whereas the Capri 18 seems to have more lateral rolling motion. In this regard, neither ride as well as a deep fin keel. Therefore most people will probably be happier in winds around 8-10 kts and flat to 1-foot swells.

Recently got a Gulfstar37. Restoring boat after 20 years of neglect. Needs lots of work, but it's a great boat.....Solid and roomy.Some minor design problems however.....nav station wastes space....should have quarter berth or aft cabin......chain plates go through wood toe rail(splitting the wood)......deck scuppers poorly beded causing water damage in balsa core deck...Left hand prop?..Boat backs to starboard...........Boat has no manual or liturature...How would I find this stuff?..Is there a Gulfstar club?....YGreenman@cs.com

We have hull #2. The boat has spent most of her life in San Francisco Bay, but has been to British Columbia (by truck) and has sailed to Hawaii. She started life as a racing boat, and was sold into our family when she was no longer "cutting edge". She has been my father's boat for many years. There are plans afoot to take her around the world, and we think she will do fine, tho some might say she's on the light displacement side. She's fast but seaworthy, as long as she doesn't have too much sail up. I think fondly of surfing down huge following waves in transit to Hawaii, then watching the next one overtake us. Sure it would poop us, then she would rise just in time. Ours has a 2 cyl diesel retrofit and a folding prop, which is not totally successful.

Have had only one season of day sailing with her. She is now at home undergoing complete refit. Everything removable is removed. Solid boat. None of the oft writen about bad stuff found. List of projects too long to show. Happy to share info of what I've learned. Happy to receive advice.
