Is anyone familiar with CF sailboats? Mfg.(Canadian?),build quality,etc.The ones I''ve seen on the net are older boats, but I''ve not been able to find any information on them.The 37 footer I was looking at was designed by Dennis Choate. Any information would be greatly appreciated.Thanks!

Never heard of CF. Could you be thinking of CS which was Canadian built?

Sailmc,

I had never heard of the CF boats either.My thinking was along the same line as yours.After digging around the net a little more, I think the boat might have been built by a yard called "Dencho Marine" in S.Cal., but I don''t know this for sure.There are two of the "CF" 37 footers listed on "Yachtworld." They appear to be "old school" race boats.The ad on "Yachtworld" lists the hull material as fiberglass, but with a displacement of ~12K, I suspect that possibly the deck and hull are some type of composite material.That''s one aspect of knowing more about the boat that I''m particularly interested in.At this point, I seem to be "Lost in Translation." Where''s Jeff_H when you need him? 8^)

CF stands for Choate-Feo, I believe. Dennis Choate (Dencho) built many of these boats in Long Beach, CA. A CF 27 was famous a few years ago when campaigned by Dennis C. CF 37s are good boats similar in size and shape to Catalina 38s. I''m sure there are much more knowledgeable folks than me out there who could give you info.

jgeissinger,

Thanks for the info.I have a couple of design databases on my home PC.I''ll try entering the Choate-Feo as manufacturer,and see if they bring up anything.I did find the boat listed on "Carl''s Sailing Calculator," as a CF 37 and the specs.for the boat were almost identical to a Farr 11.6 (38 footer)with the exception of the CF 37 being about ~2500lb.heavier.

I''m looking at a CF37 also. I was told only 10 were built. There are a couple still sailing in Southern California. I really like the style, having owned a Santana 30 that is very similar. Let me know if you find out anything.
