FFS - a swan 44 ?????

That is not exactly a boat for rookies ( not saying Julie is one...)

Even though it might be bought for 100-200k (depending vintage and condition) it requires an open checkbook thereafter....

Since I seem to remember that Julie wanted to borrow money to by a boat,
That to me suggest the opposite of an open check book.....

I love Swans ( being scandinavian ) but think they would be less than ideal cruising boats for a couple, they are feckin winch farms with teak decks and steep companionways....

Julie, I think you got lucky...
