Alternatives to the Bravo

Hi, long island --

I responded brusquely to your inquiry about "subject matter experts" the other day, mostly because an expert, say, on rebuilding a diesel engine or anchorages on St. John's may not know anything about, say, boats under 10 feet. Now that you've identified a boat that appeals to you, folks who can help can and will weigh in.

I agree with knotaloud that the Bravo is a toy, and not a very well-built one at that.

What is it about the Bravo that appeals to you? Cost, "catamaran" design, size, beachability? Tell us what qualities you want in a small boat and maybe we'll be able to point you in the right direction.

Regards,

Kurt
