There is a boat that had a few 'ahead of its time'
innovations, but was so unconventional in appearance
that it never gained any traction.
The Hobie 33 was much better at doing what
the Mega 30 set out to do.

Hey Mike your right about the C&C 36!

Yes, Mike the C&C 36 was not nearly the boat the 35 was.
I should know I owned both and regretted the day I bought the 36'. It was a poor design,tender and not as fast as the 35. A slug in light air, which was unusual since most C&C's excelled in light winds. The only worse design was the C&C 30 Mega. Now that was a horrible design. I know someone here posted some good comments about this boat. Trust me I owned/sailed many C&C's for 30 years. The Mega was C&C's version of the Ford Pinto! The 30 Mk1 or 2 was a great boat for that era. But the Mega is best suited to be a future anchor.

Fair winds, Allan
