Paceship Northwind 29

I owned a paceship eastwind 24 and I am familiar with the 29 as the design is similar. The eastwind was the nicest sailing boat I have ever had the pleasure of sailing and many who sailed with me aboard my 24 made that comment. That said, it did have drawbacks. The design tender - though not dangerously so - just be ready to spend time walking at a steep angle. Weather helm may make auto pilots finicky.

i had my Eastwind for 14 years and extensively cruised L Michigan. It was a great boat!

Walt,
I had very experienced Mac race sailers on my Northwind and they were very impressed with it''s sailing ability. I was extremely happy with it myself as well. I was just low on cash last fall from spending my entire summer sailing it on Lake Michigan including perfect lake crossings. I did not have mine bristol, but always got complements on it at every docking. I actually have tried to buy it back but the new owner is hooked as well. Have you seen the paceship.net website? Lots of good information and forum. I''m sure you probably know they were designed by C&C and built in Nova Scotia. Very solid.
