Re: C&C 32 can anyone tell me about them?

I think you may be disappointed in the 32 after owning a 7.9. While I do agree that it would be the best choice of the other boats mentioned I don't think the 32 was one of C&C's better designs. To be comparable to the 7.9 in a 32-35' boat you would need a phrf base below 150 at the very least and more like 140. You'll definitely want to sail one a couple of times before you make your decision. If performance is not that much of a concern (Liar Liar Pants on Fire Nose as long as a Telephone Wire) ( I say this because it's easy to say one doesn't care about performance until some whippersnapper starts to overtake you when you're out cruising ) God Forbid it should be a well sailed Catalina 30T. that would be just downright disgusting.
