There is an active Bayfield Group on Yahoo. bayfieldyachts : Bayfield Yacht Owner Resources

If you had any questions, I'm sure they could answer them.

All the Bayfields are great boats - solid and seaworthy. When we sold our 29, many years ago, the new owner took off on a circumnavigation. If you like the looks of the 36, look at the 29 - same shippy look, smaller, but has the head foreward - no V-berth, so the interior looks entirely different and has as much room in the main salon as the 36 - and for a lot less money.

I love my 29. The only negatives I can think of are a smallish cockpit (same as the 25) and it's not a great light wind boat.

jrd22 will become famous soon enough
My son had a 36 and I worked on it for 10 days and sailed it for about a week offshore. After crawling all over it and getting to know it I was very impressed. Well built, well thought out and things are accessible for maintenance (chainplates, deck hardware, etc.). I expected it to be sluggish especially in light winds, but was pleasantly surprised with the performance. Tracks straight downwind in 6' seas under windvane. Lot's of room inside for a 36'. A little light on fuel capacity but that's about the only negative I can think of. Great boats, I would buy one.
