Re: Freedoms, Niagaras, and Wauquiez - oh my
I owned a CS33 for 30 years. Definitely a well designed, sweet sailing boat and a very capable coastal cruiser. Not so sure about offshore use, which is why I now have a PSC37. But that's me; others may have no problem with the CS33 offshore.
The Bukh is a workhorse. While the installation is a little tight, I never had any problems working on it. Also, never had any problems getting parts for the Bukh although it was starting to get a little sticky the last few years.
