Does anyone out there own a Challenger 35'' ketch? and if so have you sailed off shore? I am interested in your experiences cos I am going off shore in the next 24 months and would like to know what to expect.
Thank you

No. Challenger was the name of the manufacturer, built in Long Beach CA, but thanks for replying anyway.

Boy, this thread is old isn't it! I posted the original question, never did get to sail offshore, went back to Europe for a spell, am now back in CA and have another Challenger, a 32' this time. Love the boats. I'd be happy to help in any way I can mabell.
All the best

Here is a site (the only one I know of about Challengers) that may be of use to you www.namotu.net/. I don't have blue water experience of the boats, but understand they are more than capable in that environment.
I'll be pulling my mast in a few months to refurbish it, I'll know more about the step then. In the meantime all I can offer is that you examine the collar the mast sits in to get an idea of what may be required.
There is a great article on exactly this subject on Sailnet that should be of assistance to you.
All the best
