Thanks for the input!
I should clarify, by race I mean, local beer-can type racing that is more for fun than anything else. By cruise I mean sail up to the san juans for a week max. I know non of these boats are perfect for either, but the last thing I want is a slow boat here in the NW. I read about people with westsails in seattle who rarily get to throw up a sail in the summer months.

I am trying not to get too excited about any particular boat, I am the type of guy who loves to buy I mostly want a boat that wont require endless hours of work and money.

You can get late 90's early 2000's hunters in the 30 to 36 foot range for around your price range. Most people have choice words about them but I think they are pretty sweet deals and fun boats. May be worth a look.

The local SJ 30 and 34's frankly, do fairly well racing when raced well. As do the 24's, 28's, 21's............

Not sure who you are talking with at MSC, but all of the ones I know are very knowledgeable folks. If it were me, not sure which way I would go. I've always had a fondness since a teen growing up in the area for SJ's, especially the 24....Then again, when I finally looked at one, a bit smaller than my teen brain said it was! altho bigger than the 21cb style boat I was used to or my 8' pram!....but C&C's have for what ever reason also a place in my heart for boats.

I can not remember what those are selling for, but there might be some other boats better suited. then again, depending upon price, livability etc...

I checked out the SJ34 it has 6 foot head room, I am 6'3"...so that is a no go. So any opionions on the C&C 39? How does she sail, is she too old?

Thanks for your comments.

Did you check out that o'day 34 listed with your broker?

I think 39k for the C&C a 70's boat is a big risk. Plus that is going to be a lot of boat for you and a friend. May be fun with 8 guys on a friday evening race at the club but besides that...

Hi John,

Why do you think it is a risk? It has had the same owner for the past 29 years, he took really good care of the boat, the latest survey says "the boat is very well maintained with pride of owndership eveiden, etc..." He is selling it because he is getting old.

I have not checked out that O'day, I am interested to see that boat, it is at another location so I have to wait for the weekend.

John:
I really don't know if this is something that you might be interested in. This is a boat being sold by an acquaintance of mine who has "aged out" of local cruising.

I have agreed to manage the Craigslist posting for him.

That being said, with similar parameters, I wound up with one of these:
1988 CS Merlin Sail Boat For Sale - www.yachtworld.com

I don't know if this meets your price requirements, but she's been a great boat.

Oh, and you are welcome for muddying the waters for you further!

I have looked at both of these boats, strongly considered taking a look at the 10.7. The engine hours scared me away. Any insight on the C&C 39?

Here is a good review on the C&C 39
C&C 39
You have probably read it.

I would say for me the atomic 4 is the big risk, then again I know a lot of people who love there atomic 4's. It all depends what you are trying to do with the boat. If you just want a fun boat I would say go with something for much less money that will match up well with the C&C in motion comfort and capsize ratio... the only sacrifice would be hull speed. Get a diesel engine and a boat at least from the 80's unless you like 70's boats. If you just want to race and occasionally sleep on your boat then I would say go with the C&C because you will hardly ever be using the atomic 4 anyways. If you are looking to cruise more and race for fun a few times a month, any boat can compete in its specif class, so I would go with something a little more cruiser friendly. Not saying full keel, but just a little more family oriented production boat like a Catalina 320 or a Hunter 33. Also this may help you down the line in comparing boats Sail Calculator Pro v3.53 - 2500+ boats
Even if you were looking to go C&C something like this may be ultimately a better purchase... http://www.yachtworld.com/core/listi..._id=75315&url=

Plus you may want to try to find a boat for sale by owner or something that you can talk down the price on, by thousands. The C&C 39 seems like it is priced on the low end but you maybe able to get similar 15 years newer and with better equipment for similar cost. Shipping is also kind of affordable if you can find a boat that you have to have. Either way the survey will tell all, so I would not get hopes up, until after survey then decide, based on repair and upgrade cost.
