Hi Stede: I have a C&C 35 Mk II 1974. I was out in S.F. Bay today in 18 - 22 knts true, with a full main and 95% jib. I can easily single hand the boat but I''ve added 6 self tailing winches, autopilot, 2 rope clutches on the boom, electric windlass, and a lot of things below to make the boat more comfy, i.e. frig, new Origo stove, deisel heater,etc. Without a reef in the main, the boat is wet in the cockpit if you have waves above 2 feet and as you know, the boat is very pretty but low in the water. I usually have 1 reef in the main, never furl the jib, and we have 25 to 30 knots every day on the bay in the summer, with gusts to 35. My boom is low so there''s little room for a dodger without interfering with the winches on the deck.
i''m also finishing a Cheoy Lee 51 for a trip to the South Pacific and NZ. I''d look into heavier boats for crossing oceans altho many C&C 35''s are in the California to Hawaii races every year. good luck, Paul

Hey Paul, thanks for the info.on your boat.Man,I can just imagine the boat rocketing around SF bay.I really like the boat.I''ve narrowed my list down to around 4 boats.I''m a little undecided on the C&C 35.I think the boat would make a great coastal cruiser,and be good at doing some trips over to the Bahamas, etc.but like you mentioned,I don''t know if I would want to cross oceans on one or not.For that matter though,I''m not sure I want to cross oceans.My plan is to get a boat that is capable of doing both,and then I''ll play the rest by ear.Good luck with the Cheoy Lee 51.Another beautiful boat. I envy you!
