Re: C&c 37+

Good luck and let me know what you find out. I'll keep you posted on the right coast market. I would assume 10k for a new mast + the cost of the new main (which I'm betting you had in the budget...

Looking for comments and advice on the 37+

To give some perspective, I owned, casually raced and cruised a 34+ for several years. Any direct comparisons to the 34+ would be very helpful.

either one is fine

Either way is fine - just depends on your comfort level, time and patience. My wife and I did the NY to Bermuda to BVI route and returned through the Bahamas. Carib 1500 is fine but you have to be...
