So I have a cc29 Mark 2 not the older model. I have recored the decks, replaced ports and hatches, new topside paint, bottom re epoxied re bed and replace old intakes, upgraded stantions and double liflines re doing mast ie wiring and all attachments, strengthend hatch and replaced with much thicker hatch cover. engin over haul yanmar, replace all hoses , working on electrical. plus lots more. I have sailed he a lot in some heavy weather but not alone. New north cruising sails are great with three reefs in Main. Question: In a few years I am retiring and sailing to Newfoundland as we vacationed there this summer. I want to take this boat around Newfoundland and eventualy doen to the bahamas. Any thoughts on if this boat is up to the challenge or additional retrofits needed.
