Is fast worth it?


Why don''t you think about an older C&C 30? built between 1970-81
Perf 174 lake Huron 162 lake Ontario
headroom 6''plus
sails well but may not point as high as some! but the stiffest C&C of her time. had friends sail one down south for two years and their still together! most have atomic 4 which is very common and easy to repair, Big Jenny plus or minus becouse the main is smaller making it easyer to handle most times the Jenny is on roller furling so if the wind pipes-up just roll it up, down side is that you end up with a small main. Must watch out for decks, mast steps, etc. hope that helps.
