Re: First Boat for Family of Six (in Oz)

Like I said my thoughts on the TS were just that, personally I wouldn't want to be on a TS with a dinky outboard and 4 kids off NSW on a day with a decent bit of wind and swell, even on a run from Lake Mac to Pittwater, Yeah sure you could wait for a flat day, but that's not really fair dinkum sailing then is it??
Not saying it can't be done, just saying it wouldn't be me doing it and If a TS is ruled out well then thats that.

I think if a bunk for everyone is a requirement then you are looking at a handful of boats 30+. The Columbia is the one I think meets that requirement the best. I would also caution against trying to buy the cheapest example on the market of any boat, it can be a real trap.
