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
