  1. I sailed my new (to me, it's a 1979) Force 5 for the first time this past weekend. There wasn't much wind but it was still a great time! I'm really looking forward to sailing this boat more!
  2. It appears to be in good condition for a 41 year old boat and all spars, rigging, and the sail are in really good condition. The transom fiberglass above the rudder gudgeon has some flex and there are crack in the gelcoat. I'm planning to use it as-is and then decided if I want to do some restoration and paint next spring. In my imagination it is 46 ft.... sadly it doesn't exist yet :). We're actually planning to make the jump to the dark side and looking for a Corsair trimaran for our family / weekend cruiser. A fast trailerable trimaran and a Force 5 seem like the perfect
  3. Yes, but it was hiding behind my X-Yacht that I had previously misplaced... Someone saw the "wanted" ad I posted on Craigslist, contacted me about it, and we made a deal that evening.
  4. Found one and it's in my garage!! Can't wait to get it out!
  5. Thanks but I'm not looking for a project boat right now :).
  6. Please let me know if you have one or know of one for sale. Thanks!
  7. Thanks for the reply Hovertank. The 970 with orange nets is apparently already sold (we tried to put an offer on it) and the other ones listed are for new builds. There aren't too many 970's out there so we're considering ordering a new one but would much prefer to save some bucks on a used one. We haven't sailed a 970 yet but have sailed the new 880 which is an awesome boat! So awesome that it already has a long backlog for new orders
  8. If anyone knows of a Corsair 970 for sale or coming on the market please let me know, preferably one located in the USA. Thanks!
  9. We're looking at 970's as well and I am also tempted by the C36. Our plan is to keep the boat in a slip 90+% of the time and trailer a few times per year to the great lakes (we're in Minnesota) or possibly to Florida in the winter. Assuming an appropriate tow vehicle such as a 1-ton pickup, how "trailerable" is the C36? I've heard it is possible to raise the mast with appropriate hardware. Obviously over-width permits legally required. Edit - I think I already know the answer... The C36 is not "trailerable" but can be trailered.
