Re: Thoughts on 34 Citation

We bought a 84' Citation 34 last year. She is a great boat so far. She sails wonderfully especially down wind (shoal draft keel) There were some leaks around port windows and it caused some water damage in the headliner, nothing too serious. The cabin is awesome, lots of room, well laid out.
I did replace the mainsheet system with a harken, the original had some standing blocks at dumb angles of to one side, this caused difficulty in main trimming for the crew. I am adding two winches on the cabin top for spinnaker sheets. I sail full sails up to 20 knots with a 130 headsail, she heels at 25 degrees and makes 7 knots on beam and 5-6 on close. She really shines on the down wind leg flying wing to wing or spinnaker. We feel blessed to have this boat.
