Thoughts on Liveaboard/Cruiser?

My dad is 6''8". he''s had to modify or customize most boats he''s owned, in order to get a long enough berth. Only one, which was custom built to begin with, fit him.

However, customizing isn''t such a bad thing. We bought a boat with interior water damage from portlight leaks and ripped out a bunch of the interior. We are now rebuilding it abd plan to leave within a year. Our TOTAL budget was about $75k for the boat. For the same price as a "ready to go" boat that wasn''t just right, we will have a boat that''s near perfect for us.
Just a thought!
