Re: Good Blue Water / Shallow Water Compromise

I would not reject a centreboard boat. Have a look at the Bristol 35.5 and 38.8 and Hood (Wauquiez) 38. All have done a lot of offshore cruisers and the 35.5 draft is something like 3' 9" with board up. Very different boats than Southerlys and cheaper I should think. Southerly would be easier to sell in Europe though.
