Great write-up of the models. We went to the San Diego Boat Show to take a look at the new models as well. What we got were the Catalinas and the Hunters.

Only additional comment I have was about the Hunter 49. Sitting in the cockpit was great. The height of the lazerette backs were at least 6 inches higher than other boats, so no more edge cutting into the small of your back. And why is it that boat builders make stantion heights just high enough to catch the bottom of shorts? Hunter got that one correct with higher stantion heights. I personally would have liked to have a two-cabin model, and my understanding from the reps that the boat only comes in the three. But that is just my preference, and the owner's cabin was still good size.
