Thanks for the replies guys.
So far we have a Caliber 38, Tayana 37, Cabo Rico 38, PSC 40, Spencer 1330, Valiant 40, Peterson 44, J-44, Farr 44, Fast Passage 39, Norseman 447, Passport 40. I'm somewhat familiar with all of them but I'll enjoy reviewing them all again and report back. Thanks for the input.
BTW, I may have given the wrong impression about the Admiral. The sailing passion is solely mine, but she can handle the boat alright. She's "the bigger the better, & I'm "less is more". No doubt we'll compromise like we always do and find something in the middle - hence the 40 footer thread.
