I am updating the spreadsheet to include marks notifying if the boat is recommended by: Mahina Expeditions List, Kretschmer's "Used Boat Notebook" and John Holtrop's affordable cruising boats list (also in Cruising World 1998).
Am trying to combine the hard numbers with analysis (calculations) and overview, so that you can compare a bunch of boats.
Seems to me this is useful because:
Most of the calculators are accurate but myopic, no big picture
Forum threads like this are great but scattered and time-sequential (not sortable)
General lists (Mahina) have little data
8-2009 update sheet more
The best thing would be this thread and accurate data on the list of all boats.
I am adding this thread as a source for the spreadsheet (Definitions Tab at bottom)
