37 center cockpit

Looking at one in the next couple of days. Anyone who has owned or sailed one want to comment on it? Any things in particular to look for, or look out for?

Thanks!

Did you buy the boat? I have owned a 32 Center Cockpit for 15 years and lived aboard for 10. I love it!

My 1978 32...

...is 32', not 32" (kind of reminds me of "This is Spinal Tap"), but I agree, they're nice boats. On these boats, there is no rudder stuffing box, because the rudder shaft tube comes up above waterline below the aft berth, where the quadrant, etc. are located. Unless someone has done a mod, the shower and (maybe) the icebox drain into the bilge, and there is no real room for a shower sump. A friend installed a high-volume pump that takes shower and icebox water outside the hull. (Biological matter in the bilge is a BAD, smelly idea). Check for the usual water intrusion on deck and cabin top, as they are end-grain balsa cored, but the hull is solid glass. It's a good coastal/bay boat with the 3'6" stub keel, and the CB drops to 7' for reasonably good upwind performance. They sail pretty upright, but reefing the main early is usually a good idea, as this keeps her even, and seems to sail faster than when heeled over. I hope you enjoy her!

No, actually, didn't buy it. Turned out to need much more work than I was willing to do.
