I would be pleased to answer any questions about this boat, I own hull number 261 34 II which has the deep fin keel. I sail on Lake Michigan. This boat is a great sailing boat and well put together. Jeff was correct about light conditions (wind below 5 knots) but when it picks up this boat flies by C&Cs of the same length and vintage. I have been offered more than 10K more for mine than what I purchased it for 7 years ago, so they hold their value if maintained and upgraded occasionally. If you post your email, I''ll send you my address to further discuss this matter. Nothing I''ve sailed on in this size range is as easy on the eyes, as well engineered and thought-out as this boat is. A mid to late 80''s boat in top condition will set you back about 75K, but well worth it!
