One point I'd make... there's a big difference between a Gemini 105Mc and a Leopard 40. The first is probably $125,000 in really good shape or $160,000 new, and the other is probably double that. The Gemini will fit into a single 40' slip without much problem and even into some 35' slips—where the Leopard is going to require a double or an end slip.

What is your realistic budget? If you can afford a Leopard 40 in good shape used, you can buy a Gemini 105Mc NEW.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
