I had a 1975 C&C 30. My understanding is that the Lancer is a C&C hull. My boat had the shoal keel 4'-2" deep. I liked the boat. Yes it had a lot of weather helm in 15-20 knots of wind. Yes it definitely prop walked - you'll get used to it. It is a good sailor and I single handed it all the time. It had a pedestal wheel steering. That was a pain because you had to step up on the cockpit seating to get around and behind the wheel. No anchor locker and no room for a bimini - low boom and mainsheet system middle of cockpit in front of the wheel. I sold it for more than I paid for it after painting the hull and doing an extensive bottom job on it. It had quite a few blisters. This was a fresh water boat. It really sailed well in 10-15 knots, it hated light air or maybe that was just me. I couldn't get it moving in light air.
