Have you looked at any of the Shannons listed? Pamlicotraveler on this forum has a S-43 that looks really nice. His pictures are in the online album... I really don't know what they'd be like for livingaboard, but I'm curious.
They would be on #1 on my short list but a little more money than I want spent. Love this boat. Maybe I find someone to share this dream with, win the lottery, or get struck by lightning (for which I would make me forget about this nightmare of chasing sunsets). All are possible.
Labatt, I remember you and your wonderful family along with John and the rest of the gang. We had a great time. Have to do another party this spring.
There is Passport 41 for sale in Ft Pierce now I will go look at when I go down next month. It doesn't have teak decks.
