Re: Liveaboard racer-cruiser?

Lake Superior Sailor. I like the Cal best as well, it's just that it twice the price of the Pearson and their PHRF rating is only a 10-point difference.

Paulk, I thought the Commanche might be a good compromise, since I really wanted the Cal. But the entry price into the Commanche and the Pearsonare half as much, so I could afford to put more money into the refit/outfitting of either boat. I like the interior space of the Pearson (and the price) also, I like the idea of adjustable-draft for getting into shallow channels, but I am suspicious about the ability of a keel/centerboard hybrid's ability to go upwind like a Cal or a Rhodes 41 (another one I like).

Letrappes, I am a little wary of giving up my shower, and I have been thinking about a compromise. My I dea was to convert the cockpit to a shower by having a full biminy-dodger built and installing a heated, pressurised water-source. It would be big and easy to clean! What do you think?
