Hey code, we are old sailors that have been owners of 5 different boats over 45+ years. Boat 3 was a Bayfield 36 (read about Bayfield/Gozzard history). The Bayfield was full keel and beamy and all that implies. Would track like no body's business, but was not a fast boat. Would reach off nicely, but not point so well. Was comfortable in a seaway, and roomy to live on for its size. We sailed NE from Cape Cod to Canada with her, enjoyed her very much. Cutter rig was nice in a blow, this one was rigged with the staysail on a furler, cake to reduce sail and balance. Sprit was nice platform for an anchor. Depending on your esthetics, pleasing to the eye. Wouldn't buy one for Wednesday night beer can races. Think about your intended use, and good luck with your purchase. Sailboat purchases are a balance between form and function. Make sure you are please with both these factors.
