|karlhead||I worked many years in a repair yard and even when almost new a lot of CL had deck problems. Many of the boats I worked on were not deck caulked correctly and that led to the non-marine grade plywood used as core being prone to rot. Also, the ports in a lot of the boats leaked which was easy enough to fix except a few of them were bedded with 5200 which led to a nightmare. Also the trailing edge of the rudder at the bottom many times delaminated for some reason but was a minor repair. All in all a good boat and I think one of the prettiest, but check the deck and cabin before buying.|

|imagine2frolic||Are you looking to buy one? If so several months ago a man passed away. He never took the boat out, but was constantly maintaining it. I believ e she is 31ft., and well equipped........i2f|

I've been checking out CLs online 30- 40 ish in length. They are really beautiful boats! Yes, I admit beauty is in the eye of the beholder but the joiner work, the interiors are beyond anything usa builders seem to offer.
I do understand with beauty comes work.. lots of work to maintain all the bright work. But even the ones with weathered teak are still a sight to behold. Cheoy Lee Sailboat Association Page2
I've not seen much about them on various forums so I wonder what people think of CLs Apparently they have been built in many designs by very well known designers. I'd love to hear about these boats!
