My son had a 36 and I worked on it for 10 days and sailed it for about a week offshore. After crawling all over it and getting to know it I was very impressed. Well built, well thought out and things are accessible for maintenance (chainplates, deck hardware, etc.). I expected it to be sluggish especially in light winds, but was pleasantly surprised with the performance. Tracks straight downwind in 6' seas under windvane. Lot's of room inside for a 36'. A little light on fuel capacity but that's about the only negative I can think of. Great boats, I would buy one.
