Re: First 35

Hmm, I looked at a First 35 in 2009 up in Milwaukee. Seller listed with a broker and bumped price $10,000 after I made app't to drive 400 miles to see it. I cancelled. Nice boats but a bit porky for racing. Stuck to water in GL light air so that the 120 is a tough PHRF number. When the winds up they are fine. We had one in our area sailed by a good crew and well equipped. It never could sail to its rating. I was more interested in its cruise capabilities which look to be pretty good.
