I think if it ment going the used route, I would look for a 109 in a few yrs personally. A few feet longer, faster etc. Then what do I know! Just stating an opinion.
I also think personally that the 105's and 109's are rated a bit slow, should be about 5-8 secs faster into the upper 70's and low 80's. Or the C&C 115 was on last spring needs to go slower by the 5-8 secs. Upwind we did fine, down wind..........left behind big time! way more so than we gained upwind.
Anyway, we may if we can afford it look a bit more closely at the 97. We would like something a bit less etc than a 109. Just wish they were NOT building the 97 in France, the Euro/US$ exchange rate is going to make the cost a bit higher than necessary if one asks me too. not that my opin counts for anything here either! A bendy toy 36.7 new at 160K is looking pretty good! used in the 110-120 range............
