Nelson Merek 43 pros and cons as cruiser?
I obtained this boat as salvage after Katrina and am spending a good deal of time and $ putting it back together. Inside did not take water ,both 8kw gen and perkins 51 are fine. Replaced toerail and all stanchions, thinking of putting a stainless arch on the stern for radar, antennas, wind gen, davits for dingy. Am I putting too much in this class of boat? My first was a Ranger 26 somrtime ago. This is a first for me in this size craft. Info plase too advise. Thanks j bear
