WOW Thank you Melrna. I really appreciate such an in depth write up. I am going to save this and print it out for future reference. You answered alot of questions that were running thru my mind as I have done my research.
I think this boat will suit my needs perfectly. I plan on only doing some coastal cruising for the forseeable future and this boat will handle that well. I also love the layout for my liveaboard needs.
Now just have to find a good one to buy!!
