Re: Lets choose SmackDaddy's new boat...
I think that if you're cruising, you're basically "playing house" at anchor or slip for a significant part of each day. And the time out there relaxing is a lot nicer if you have comfortable accommodations. With kids or family members aboard, roomy private cabins can be really important.
So yes, you basically want a floating condo. But his boat's PHRF rating shows that it can also be a good performer. So it does give a little of the best of both worlds, so long as you're not venturing too far out into serious blue water.
So go for it. We'll try to curb the Hunter bashing.
