Patrick, I'd take your boat anywhere! I've sailed a C&C 32 just on a daysail and had a friend who sailed his C&C in a hurricane (caught in a passage) for three days with no damage. They have one of the best reputations for seaworthiness and sound construction of any production boat. They're beautifully balanced and designed, as well. The new C&Cs are really wonderful and take advantage of many of the recent substantial design advances wile maintaining their focus on performance, seaworthiness, seakindliness and beauty. As you can tell, I'm a big fan of them. You'll get other responses from me if you'll only ask about boats that are flimsy and poorly designed. Seriously, though - C&Cs are wonderful boats and for their price, have an amazing level of craftsmanship. If further proof is needed, I only have repaired a few minor things on them, though I make major repairs and upgrades on Hunters constantly, even though Hunter owners don't sail as C&C owners do.
I'm a shipwright, rigger and professional sailor, in business as My Boat Works, in Los Angeles. I also make super quality, High-Definition instructional boating movies! I'm here to give my expertise to boaters, as I was helped. It's my pleasure to help you enjoy activities I love so. Cheers! - Jerr
