Re: First 35

I found this thread while searching for information on headliners. Pretty sure I bought the boat being discussed here. Don't know how I missed the thread as I was browsing pretty heavily during the development of the thread. Anyway T34C, we may have been competing with each other on this purchase...maybe not. Maybe we will cross paths if you are sailing Lake Michigan....I provide the beverages.

I pulled the headliner in the rear berths last weekend. What a dusty mess. The foam turned to dust. Got most of it out without tearing the fabric. The plan is to use the old headliner as patterns for the new. There is good information in this thread for the project.

The liner part is pretty easy to do. I did it on my 85 Jeanneau. Took some time, but overall, pretty easy, did a few improvements too.

I would also bet, a B375 would out sail smackys boat in most conditions to, dispite the small rating difference. Assuming equal crew ability etc.

Re: First 35

Hmm, I looked at a First 35 in 2009 up in Milwaukee. Seller listed with a broker and bumped price $10,000 after I made app't to drive 400 miles to see it. I cancelled. Nice boats but a bit porky for racing. Stuck to water in GL light air so that the 120 is a tough PHRF number. When the winds up they are fine. We had one in our area sailed by a good crew and well equipped. It never could sail to its rating. I was more interested in its cruise capabilities which look to be pretty good.

First 35

T34C - Three seasons ago, we traded our beautiful old Tartan 34C for a Beneteau First Series. While I confess to missing the Tartan's beautiful lines, I don't miss racing her or sailing her in the light air that dominates my sailing venue. To boot, we cut 3.5 hours off of our trip to our favorite destination port. The Beneteau sure isn't pretty but she didn't come with an endless list of projects that come with a 40 year old boat either.

Now if I could just sail her to the rating.
... if you were racing her, I suspect you'd LOVE 115 or 120!!

I came very, very close to buying a First 375:



Honestly, the biggest thing that turned me off was that stupid headliner. It's just such a silly thing to have to work so hard on.

I hope it works out for you. Cool boats.

True, but you don't get to take the prettiest girl to the prom without a bit of extra work!
