I'm living on it! And then I realized a Cat or Hunter was exactly what I wanted. Lots of beam, pressure water...HEAT!!

After an hour outside of Boston Harbor with gusts to 35 and 6-8 ft seas
I was totally confident in this boat.

If I had to beat into that I would have went and hid somewhere probably. If not for the boat, for the crew.

Yea.... I LIKE this boat. It'll do everything I want to do Xs 10.
I say if your not out to to cross oceans, impress racers and yachtsmen.

If you just want to be on the ocean comfortably by all means check out some Cats and Hunters.

kickin' back and enjoying just being aboard...for the foreseeable future.

cool thanks for the info NightWing.

All the things you mentioned are exactly what I am looking for for the type of sailing I plan on (at least for the near future) aint out to impress know-body, just want to get "out there" ...bluewater? Sure maybe; but definitely not right now. I'm thinkin' a Cat er Hunter should just about fit the bill
