Want to take a fews years off since the construction biz in Vegas is so slow. I figured that now would be a good time to head to the Caribbean and I want a boat I can easily scuba dive from and still single hand.

Jim,

I do not mean to side track you here, but would like to offer another option that is great for the carribean: A Catalina 380 or for more money, a Catalina 400. THe 380 is a very solid boat, the 400 a better performer. We lived aboard our 380 (and soon will our 400). We have great memories of it. Here is a pic:
