This boat is actually coming off the line 5/11/98, but the
program wouldn't let me enter it as built in 1998. Hull
140, std. rig, wing keel, canvas, st50's, GPS, autopilot.
I'll enter more info this summer. :-)

I took delivery in the Fall and hauled the boat after only a few sails. "God-Speed" will be in Lake Michigan. I will be recommisioning in mid-April. I'll try to keep everyone posted on what I find. So far this is my third new boat, and I am pleased with what I have experienced.

"Absolute" christened 1997 by Dennis Conner.
Room to spare. Sails well in light air as well as heavy.
This boat carrys the optional 155 genoa. The only weakness is the same with every Catalina I've owned (3), the backstays are too long.

Dreamy Daze, #37, was delivered from comissioning on 4-97. She has a wing keel, roller furling main and 135% jightenedb. Our "sea trial" was the Transat race-round trip to Bermuda from Daytona Beach, FL. What a sail and what a boat! We got a third place, enduring no wind to sustained 35 kts (gusts to 50)and flat to 20+ ft. seas. Any problems were minor except the jib furler tried to disassemble itself which was caught in time and tightened. My only complaint in design: on a starboard tack the head can't draw. We now have 2 1/2 years behind us, about 3500 mi cruising and several more races with another bluewater planned for May...the Gulfstreamer (Daytona to Charleston)

Pros:
Cons:

12/02 - Our 1999 C-380 "Triton" sails the Gulf Coast--mostly Lake Ponchartrain these days--and is one of 3 C-380s in the New Orleans area. She is respectably swift for her SA/D. Overall quality, fit and finish and accommodations are excellent. Works well with the autoprop and stock 135% RF genoa. This boat and her systems have held up well in the first 3 years. She's very confident and easy to handle. Turned out to be a good buy for us.
