blt2ski will become famous soon enough

There is quite a few folks from here in the greater Seattle/puget sound region with boats. If your wanting a ride to try a certain size out etc, I am sure you could do so.

I have a small 30' Jeanneau, djonda has a Catalina 30, what I would call a large 30' boat. Jody a rare 38' Berberis, more of a racer cruiser style. The San juan 28 PT got, is what I would call a large 28, not much smaller in demensions than my Jeanneau.

Some thing to think about, up to 30', some will and will not have showers. Some like mine only has a head, but a full kitchen use with no hot water. A shower is something my wife wishes we had. The Catilina's have showers down to there 28' size.

A lot of options for interiors. Then you need to look at underbody's and sail area. My boat is faster than a Cat 30, but I also have what some would say is less inside stuff, ie no shower.

Enjoy your time here.

She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!
