I too am looking for a retirement boat. I'm in Fl. This is the very last of my bucket list, I wish it had been the first!! I'm looking at 26,28' Cats. If that proves to be beyond my financial grasp, just like a woman, I'm going with the width of the beam, solar, maybe a Watkins or Island Packet. Just the thought of the possibilities fills me with joy!!! When I get my vessel, will definitely post and probably be a pain with my blogs looking for info.
