The start of the trail

In the fall of 2015 Happy Camper was purchased by Ben Haase and Chris Moon with visions of restoring and sailing the 34ft Catalina sloop.

She had been out of the water for the last 5 years after sustaining some damage to her keel and rudder. Within that time she’d been sold once, but was still in need of some TLC.

We were ready for the project and excited for the prospects of having a beautiful boat to sail Long Island Sound.

  1. Hi Ben. I recently purchased an ’87 C34.
    I intend to spend the next 9 months preparing the boat (sorry, yacht), ready for cruising. I would like to stay in touch. I am Sophie on C34.org. I am in Moss Landing, CA.
    Good luck with your project,
