Re: Boat Finders Fee!

Interesting.. I'm sure you could reinstate those pilot berths.. That's a VERY tall companionway ladder and the access to it on deck is rather exposed- I'd be a bit concerned about that for the young 'uns. It will interesting in and out in a seaway.

Plenty of gear.. This is a big, brawny boat and I'm not certain that it will fall into the "family cruiser" category. It's very similar to our previous boat (Choate 40).. We sailed it mostly with a pretty big crew. Lots of muscle required but this one is better equipped...
