Blue Water Cruiser
Hi Jeff, thanks for the suggestions, they are all good ones. Will have to check out the Colvin online. And, great to hear from you. We have chatted about the Morgan 382, which I have thought about in the past.
Your choices were on my long list, but I am discounting the C&C''s because they are balsa cored. I may revisit this, because they are such good boats. I think the 40 has too deep a draft though. I still like the Morgan, but have just not been too impressed with the cabin joinery.
I was thinking the Cheoy Lee Pedrick and am looking at it on Friday. I was wondering if you were going to include the O''Day 40 (very comfy but coastal only? and cored as well) or an Endeavour 40 (slow but nice below, heavy and perhaps stable?).
And... the Jeanneau 40. Not bad all around. Some people like them, others put them with Hunters. (I know there is another thread on Jeanneau''s here).
