Yes - without unlimited funds (even then) I will have to compromise! I am committed to this, and will end up with something that I WILL be happy with (overall). lol... I have a written list of "nice to have" and "have to have". I think the priority is going to be liveaboard accomodations - if I'm unhappy for the 75% of the time (at least) the boat is standing still, it won't really matter how well she sails.
IF I have to compromise, it shouldn't be on the living amenities. I think the C30 has a LOT to offer in terms of BOTH live aboard comfort and decent sailing characteristics. So, I'll probably end up with one of those. The head IS cramped, but I'll either be using the one at the marina or a nearby health club (that I'll join) 90% of the time. Besides, the support from you guys and I'm told from the company, are PHENOMENAL!
