Re: 1984 c&c 35-3

I'm thinking of getting a 35-3 as my next boat. Anyone out there have experience with the 35-3 centerboard model? Any major things to look out for? How well does the center board model sail, leaks, etc. Thanks.

BTW- The 35-3 is a Rob Ball design like the 27-5, 29-2,30-2,33-2. I like his work and think he is been very under rated as a designer.

Chef has the c/b model. You might want to send him a PM. I have not sailed the c/b model, mine is a keel. Awesome boats!

Centerboard is a great feature. Allows you too reef later 20-22 vs 17 and point higher to windward. It is a weighted CB so it doesnt rattle lilke some other fiberglass ones and needs to be put down gently. It gives great flexibily to gunkholing as you can decrease draft to 4'6.

The model ois simple and operates with a cabin top winch. It is a rope cable which does down to the keel and pulls the board up around a piviting pin.
No leaks. It does howver mnean your boat has a very shallow bildge

The 35 MKIII k/c is a rocket ship of a boat in light and moderate air up to 20.
She will sail faster than most larger Bene/ Cat hunters and point higher. She and the Sabre 34/36 are similar with the Js a little quicker. PHRF is 127. She is a very well balanced boat and handles seas up to 10-12 ( good interval) easily

We dont race ours anymore and use her a a costal cruiser going to Long Island and New England in the Atlantic from the Chessie. These are not production boats in the interior but are quite comfortable and spacious. V berth is large and longer than almost any you will find. Anchor locker is huge and you can stand in it and close the lid. Lots of good quality winches ours has 7, Well designed Nav station. Geat table configuaration. We actually leave ours down so we have a couch as most of our meals are in the cockpit. The table is off to the side though so going forward is easy and safe and you wont get impaled. Head is small but definately manageable, Galley is well set up with a large box for refrigeration. Cockpit is perfect for safety. Ours is set up to singlehand as I do that a fair amount. Engine shoehorned in but is accessable. Good solid chainplates

What to watch for. Windows like all other C&C leak, mast step, C&C smile and all thru deck and hull for proper setting so no core infiltration.

I highly recommend this model. It is the best of the 35 and one of the best models they ever made

We have added many items to ours fore comfort such as tankage etc so PM me for more info
