A Tripp 33 or Soverel 33 are frac rigs. Don't know about the Tripp, but the Soverel is a nice light air boat, but a handful in a breeze. Neither boat has the interior space of the previously mentioned 4 'performance' boats.

Chuck Buck, how did you like the C&C 29?

I'd like to PM you about it but don't have enough post on here

Tripp or the Soverel would be my pick. Cheaper sails, need less crew, and easily within your budget.

The Olson 30 and Hobie 33 are also fast boats.

Do you really want to go cruising on the Tripp or Soverel? Really?
If it's just go fast bang for the buck, it's hard to beat an Olson 30, but would you really wa.... ?

Or then a J-35, or Express 37.... we're into much larger operational budgets here, don't you think WD? Nothing personal, but your boats just aren't built as well as anything that was made in Santa Cruz.

I'm very happy cruising and casually racing my CS 36 Merlin that I bought last year. She's fast, and comfortable.

CS 36 traditionals are also well thought ofl

Good luck!

thanks David,

My Dad actually had a CS 30 (1986) nice boat, but couldn't point very well upwind. Not sure if it was the 30, or just how we had her rigged.

How does the 36 point?

Chuck,

Davids Merlin, your dads 30 are similar in design to my jeanneau, same designer too ie Tony Castro. That boat should have been able to point. Mine did not at first, but some rig tuning/tweaking etc, and I have gotten to 30* apparent, 35-40 true. My gut says something was amiss.

Any of the TC designed CS boats would be a good boat for your use.

Marty
