We have a 1983 35 C&C Keel/ centerboard 4'2"-7'5" and are on the Chesapeake on Rock Creek off the Patasco. It is a good all round/ crusier. Comfortable on trips offshore coastal crusing to Mystic but primarily gunkholing and sailing all over the northern and central Chesapeake. She points extremely well, has great balance in light moderate and heavy winds
Need to reef usually around 22 if not gusty. Can be a bit tender and sensitive if overpowered. Good salon setup and removable offset table. Spacious V berth. Easily single handled but certainly a great boat for a couple. Equipped with good quality equipment from the factory and well designed joinery. Good combo of interior teak and wood. PHRF rated 129
We are very happy with her though we are looking to get somewhat large and are looking at Hylas and Hallberg Rasseys, Passports and Sagas in the 42 range and know they will not have the same performance as our C&C.
Feel free to PM me for more information.
