Re: 1984 c&c 35-3
You will also want to watch for damage from mast pumping. This is a known problem in this model as well as my 36. It is most noticable at the dock with the wind abeam. You will also want to check the holding tank outlet. This model has a tendancy to not draw enough air in when you are pumping out. This causes the outlet to flex and crack the tank. I solved the issue by installing a second 1/2" air intake into the tank.
I sailed by 36 on Superior and well know as a great light air boat. But it is also great in the heavy stuff. I sailed mine with a double reef main and a reef in a 105 in 40 knots and the boat handled it with no problem.
