Re: Lets choose SmackDaddy's new boat...
I vote for a Catalina 30, Tartan 30 or a Pearson 30. He'll enjoy the nice cruising accomodations, solid build, and a decent turn of speed at a bargain price. Gotta park it somewhere safer though, or he could be in for a repeat-performance.
I'll "get thee hence" to the BFS site and buy something.
Smack, I'm truly sorry. As a Navy man, I understand the bond between a man and his vessel. I saw the care that you put into your C27 and I know that you had that bond.
Keep calm, and carry on.
