Thanks all, this is exactly what I was looking for. One thing about the CS36 that I wonder about. The broker has sold these since the beginning, and he talked (quite frankly) about hull stringer delam problems that can occur after a grounding. Apparently when the forward lower edge of the keel hits something, the leverage causes the back upper edge to oilcan the hull, breaking away the grid, which is tabbed (not glued) into place. I have not heard this being a problem with other makes. The broker's answer is that with different boats, you will have problems after a good grounding but they just happen in different places. On this boat it's along the grid, on a hunter it would be elsewhere.

Any comments about this? Everything I have read about Cs talks about the quality of the boat.
