Re: C&c 37+
We're still seriously looking at it. You're absolutely right about the standing rigging. The issue is really the cost of the mast itself. This boat is priced in line with the rest of the market right now; depending on how much a new stick costs, I might still come out ahead buying one of the other boats from out of state and having it shipped here.
That comes with its own set of problems, of course... which is why I am hoping to check out or otherwise get a line on the condition of the one up in Vancouver!
