Thanks for the recs. I'll get quotes from those guys.

Puddinlegs,
We are getting out quite a bit. What a great boat! No racing yet, but still having fun.

Seattle Upholstery

Can anyone recommend an upholstery shop? My 1990 C&C 34+ is looking a bit threadbare.

Anywhere in the Seattle/Tacoma/Portland area is fine.

Thanks,

C&C 34+

I ended up going with a "performance cruiser" rather than a racer. We closed earlier this week and we're taking our first cruise through the San Juans at the end of the month.

To Barrier Coat or Not to Barrier Coat

Esteemed sailing colleagues,

I'm buying a 1990 C&C 34+ (Balsa cored hull). The bottom paint, though applied 9 months ago, is flaking off down to the gelcoat. Large chunks came off when pressure...

Sup Puddin?

I did find one! If the survey goes well, we'll be sailing her down the end of May. We'll pull over in Seattle and buy you a beer for your help and advice.

Marty,

Thanks for the post. I follow your logic. If I spent a lot of dough on a boat and the frame rusted out of it, I'd whine like crazy. As much as I've scoured the internet, I would think...

Thanks for the suggestions Sailoneroad and Raindog. I'll look into it. I think light air performance is going to be the clincher on any of these, so the Ericson could work out.

It may be best to stick with a faster cruiser than try and get a slower racer. It'd be nice to straddle the line of racer/cruiser, but it doesn't really seem feasible. Even if I were to get a super...
