Let me get this straight... the newer boat with the options you want and the shallower draft is the less expensive of the two, and you'd give all that up to pay more money for an older boat, that has fewer requested options just because it is a full-keel design... DUH..

BTW, it would help if you said what the two boats are. Also, the fin keel is likely to be far more manueverable, especially important in tight marina fairways. If you're on a mooring, that won't matter as much.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
