We really like the C&C 27 MKIII or the C&C 30 MKII. Lot's of room but not something we can live on. We are trying to find a Tayana 37 or 42, or some extended cruising. She doesn't need much room (so she tells me) as long as we can hook up. At the cottage we have a 10ft dingy we seem to float around in without difficulty.
We should all feel shame that it took 128 posts for someone to say "dinghy". And they weren't even putting it in proper context!!!
