Biggest among it's virtures is performance. She more than keeps up with traffic and is very easy to sail well.

Please if you are still on sailnet, get back to me re the US 35. I just bought one and am hard pressed to get details on the boat . Any advice or issues with the boat? I understand its bayliner built and has the same hulls that it sold back to Cooper yachts for their continued production of the cooper 353 after their fire . Is the hull and deck and chainplates , etc to same specs as the 353 I assume designer Huntingford would of required for any builder of his designs. can you share your experience with your boat? TIM B.
