Dave...he already has a passport 40...I have a tayana 52...what he is looking at is not too much boat for a family and a competent sailor. He obviously is not strapped for cash if he is looking at a 750k boat.
Some of us like the comfort AND safety of a larger boat as our home. Labatt will ONLY be happy on a large boat...just like me.
Well then all I can say is COOL!
Still seems a shame to have the draft keep you out of some good cruising grounds...
Didn't know he had the Passport, or that family would be aboard. Guess I need to read Sailnet more often.
I know for ME, 40-41 feet would be about the limit of what I'd want to take off in. Course it wouldn't be w/ the kids!
