Given that asking for opinions may be like opening the flood gates, I'm willing to take the chance. I'm considering buying either a Rhodes 41, an early 39 or a 44 Countess. All great boats. My plan is to circumnavigate over several years. These boats are all known for sturdy, bullet proof construction.
For those that have owned them, I have owned 2 39's, what are the pluses and minuses of each.
