Re: Make do with wrong boat

Dave, I started out looking for a 35 mk1 and then at Mk IIs, I didn't even look at a 35 Mk III because they all seemed pretty pricey. Fantastic boats, though. There's nothing about the Mk III I don't like (or any of the 35s). From the way they look, to the way they sail, to the layout, Your boat is nigh on a perfect cruiser/racer solution for her size. I think you've got a great boat!
I got very lucky with Peregrine, she wasn't even listed, but was owned by a friend of a friend who was willing to let her go to a good home (you know how we get emotionally involved with our boats) and my wife and I seemed like the right people. Hence the very reasonable price. The PO and I are becoming friends and he's made it clear that if I take him sailing, he'll bring plenty of beer.
