Thanks for all the input. I somehow missed some of your responses DOH!. To answer your question CAM, Yes we will be primarily at the dock for the first 5 years or so and doing day sailing in San Diego as well as long trips to Mexico ,Catalina, and along the Cali coast.

As much as I like the Perry Double Enders I do agree with issues of space at dock teak decks tanks etc...

My idea was to buy a boat that would be good for both but that is not the case, so when we decide to go cruising away from Terra Firma we might have to get something specifically for that adventure.

So here is my new list. Comments Please


#1 Ericson 200 or 380 (with performance Keel)
#2 Golden Wave 42
#3 Freeport 36
#4 Pearson 424
#5 Kelly Peterson 44
#6 Catalina 42 MKII
