Thoughts on Liveaboard/Cruiser?
We are planning on retiring onto a liveaboard/cruiser and are gravitating towards Hardins,Formosas, and Vagabonds in the 44-51 ft range. Our budget is around 100k. Our plan is to buy in 2 years and liveaboard in Slidell,La while we outfit and finish topping off the kitty.(1-2yrs). Then we''re off to the Carribean and who knows where. I am 6''8" so a ''little'' room is neccessary and Debi is a great cook. We are really more interested in comfort(at anchor and underway) than speed and performance, while safety is always important. Any comments,pros,cons,and pitfalls on these boats or suggestions about others would be appreciated. Thanks, Paul
