Buchan 37 Epilogue
At this time, many of the Buchan 37s have retired from racing; however, they still make a very effective cruising sailboat. Their fiberglass hulls were and are strong, solid hulls. And to the best of my knowledge none have ever experienced the delamination problems that plagued so many boats of that era.
