Re: First Boat for Family of Six (in Oz)
If you could squeeze the budget even a touch I would highly recommend looking at a Columbia 34.
An early American design, however the aussie boats were built here and are alot newer. They are huge for a 34 footer, and can sleep 7 with everyone in their very own bunk.You would get one for 40K.
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.
