Other than the company issues that SD talks about.............

Having sailed in the Seattle NOOD's aboard a friends 115, it does perform reasonably well. It does take good team work to perform to its ratings. It is not a true planer like a J105/109. They have lower ratings locally, and may times boat to boat will beat a C&C. There is one on the east coast that is doing reasonably well tho, and one locally that does well too.

The friends of mine that I crewed on, do luv there boat for cruising etc, along with the occasional race. They are not what I would call hard core racers, but folks that like to bash some bouy's along with cruising and enjoying their boat.

I would also guess that you are looking at a used one being as it is a 2006. While i personally would luv to own a 115, not sure that I would if a warrenty is wanted in your plans, as the base company has tried to sell with out transfering the warrenty. So you may be or should plan on being your own warrenty person for the hull. The other stuff, that was bought and put into the boat, still will have manufactures warrenties.

Generally speaking, they are nice boats, and the folks I know with them, like them.

Cb is saying what I was attempting to say, altho not sure how well, locally the 115s are in the low 70s, J105/109 in the 80's to low 90's, and clobber the local 115's on actual and handicap time for the most part. so they are a bit hard to race to rating.

Nice boats, solid feel in winds into the 30's. Sails well with a reefed main alone. Hit into the low 8's one night coming home from a race where the wind picked up. Have hit into the 9's with a spin up.

i would personally put them into the slower end of the Race/cruiser spectrum, definetly on the fast end of the cruise/race spectrum of boats.
