Am I Insane? (distressed boat purchase?)

I recently bought a C&C 34 that had suffered a cushion fire caused by a halogen light. The boat was nasty to look at, but my surveyor stressed the damage was cosmetic so I bought the boat. I re-finished the interior and it looks brand new (to the untrained eye). Finally this weekend I was able to take it on the maiden voyage and I can attest to one thing, the boat sails exceptional and I now feel all of my elbow grease was well worth it. So if you can determine the boat is salvagable, you will have a great sailing boat.

Caveat: I don''t have alot to compare the boat to having only sailed on a handfull of boats in my life.

Good luck.
