Re: Looking for Design Suggestions for my next boat

You'd be surprised. I gutted and renovated my current boat while living aboard. I'd rather not do it that way again. I did just find an Alberg 37 reputedly fully found and cruise ready with newer sails, full canvas dodger, bimini, enclosure sound diesel etc. Decks done, core fixed..interior cushions ago and plain jane finish below for $35K...in Grenada. A bit outside my shopping area, but it just goes to show it is possible. I know what some of the moderators feel about the older designs, but that particular design has just about gone everywhere. Perhaps not as quickly or comfortably, but for the money there are some great values to be had. My purpose in posting was to maybe learn about some designs I'd not thought of.
