About to take over a 1982 38' Landfall, any first thoughts? I actually didn't even notice if the boat had a windlass... I was excited! Does anyone know of a place where I can get used sails and canvas?
About to take over?? Buying or dropped in your lap? Interesting boats, unconventional layout as mentioned but in some ways ahead of their time.
Cruisier boats than the normal C&C line but with the traditional good lines and C&C sheer. Good cockpit.
Sails, dodgers, and other canvas are mostly custom. You may have some luck finding used sails that sorta fit, but generally not much second hand canvas is likely to fit without modification, and in any event it's rather rare, something available is probably pretty much worn out.
One other thought.. if buying sails and canvas is going to be an issue, perhaps you're biting off more than you can chew on several other fronts like moorage, routine maintenance, haulouts, bottom paint, etc etc. Many of these costs are exponentially higher with increasing length.
