Thanks for the info on the Moodies. I guess some brands did what they had to do to survive. I like the look of the Moodies, but parts would probably be harder to source, and the owner's site for Cat 42s is tough to beat for advice.

As for buying a charter boat, the wife is not into the option of buying this way. She wants the boat to have 'her stuff' and 'our gear' on it and it seems like it would be hard to equip in this manner. Ideally, we would buy on the east coast, even florida with its great parts availability. Would prices be that much better in the areas you mentioned, such as parts or (especially) labor?

As we will be bringing a fair amount of equipment across from our previous boat, I am not sure if it would be economical to ship it all.

Thanks for the help.
