Strong and comfy are priorities as is roominess, though the scale for roominess on a boat is a little out of whack with my perceptions of what i think it should be. i looked at a hunter 28 and thought that i'd be miserable in that thing. for somereason when i get past the stability, and the speed, i get overly concerned with creature comforts. do you mind sharing some pictures of the interior? I have crazy (probably impractical) dreams about playing my ps3 on a 40 inch screen in the middle of the ocean battery power might make that possible for about five or six seconds.
