That's a smaller version of my 43. I can recommend it although the looks of the 34 put some people off due to the high freeboard - it's the same height as my 43.

That price seems very high - they go for 1/2 that here.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
