Hey VP, (WVU & SM) I have an 84 N/M 45 CB version. It's a great boat , sails fantastically . I race it occasionally and always do well. It's a little tender past 17 wind speed, needs a reef to stay on its feet , but it points like crazy!
I have no issues with the CB. It is easy to raise and lower. There is no friction in the line/pipe. I could raise it without the winch if I wanted to.
I do have the floor sag that you speak about right at the forward bulkhead at the door sill to the forward head. I don't like it, but am not overly concerned about it. I would like to know if my boat has the upgraded mast step though. I don't have another boat to compare to, so maybe we all can share pics/notes on what the mast area/step looks like. I have sent a note to 'cedoyle' who appears to have the answer, but as yet I have not recieved a reply.
