Well all you need to do is convince your better half that you do need the storage space and buy yourself a Catalina.
OTOH I know where you can pick up a good steel Van De Stadt 34 with lost of stowage space and less money than a Catalina.
Thanks, TD - believe me, I can't afford a Catalina, but don't get your hopes up just yet.
Even if she-who-must-be-obeyed says yes, living in congested Smellbourne, it's gonna take 2 years for me to find a place to park it - and methinks you don't want to wait that long!!
...but I've already applied for a mooring.
