boat check - to Jeff H and others
Over the past year and a half I have been researching information for the purchase of my first boat. Finally the time has arrived and I have narrowed my choices down to these models Alberg 37, CSY 37, Cape Dory 36, Dickerson 37, and the Allied Princess.
I will liveaboard - Southern Climate maybe the tropics. I expect to single-hand most of the time. Occasional guests. The extent of my cruising will most likely be from North Carolina to USVI/BVI area.
I would value your input on the above models as to which would best suit my needs and which you think have the better reputation as a sea-worthy boat.
