Northbay...I would agree that the G50 is a bluewater boat as we have friends who have made a number of bluewater passages in one. I think they are pretty well built in terms of robustness but have had problems with leaks, deck core and tanks so that is probaly why Neal left them off the list. Nevertheless..if those things have been taken care of I would not hesitate to voyage in one and the SPACE is terriffic for living aboard. I would not say the same of several smaller Gstars I've been on.
