Please note, by showing that link/story, I am NOT trying to say anything bad about NC. They are an excellent boat from what I can tell, been told etc. The purpose was to show that some of you with this boat, describing certain issues that could be a problem, and here is one in that situation with problems.
Yes there could have been more issues, such as rigging that was borderline and not known when they took off! As I say, I do know the writer, the couple I was with, he sold them their C&C 115, he also has many miles as a delivery skipper, capts license......list goes on as to his credentials.
So for those looking at NC's, Please do not throw this boat out from this single story. Use the issues as a learning point and move on from there. I will admit, I personally in this stage of my life, would not buy an NC. But maybe later, as I am older, do not want to race as much as I do currently, but spend more time cruising/daysailing, an NC could very well go to the top of the list for sailing here in Puget sound. They are reasonably popular boats for many reasons.
