Hi all,

The Gemini is still the strongest contender. The used market has numerous models for sale, spread out geographically. New is possible as the price difference, while meaningful is not a deal killer.

I have been "fortunate" in that the marina is willing to rent me an end tie with no power, possibly fresh water for the price of a 35ft. slip. They are willing to run power out there for $3000.00....nice.

As for comparisons, it's tough. The sailing crowd in PHX is small with the largest boat being a 36 Catalina, several 34's, one Bavaria etc. That means traveling to CA just to examine a few models.

Tomcats don't seem to be prevalent enough out here to consider a reasonable comparison.

Thanks again for all of the info.
