Re: Aloha 34
I don't think that it matters very much if it is keel or deck-stepped - the mast is much too big to make it convenient for dropping to go under bridges. If this is an absolute must you need to look at boats with purpose-built tabernacles. I think there are some Dutch boats like that.
Heading back to Lake Ontario for this summer. Relatively few stops along the way from Grenada. Martinique, Guadeloupe, St. Martin (must have something to do with the French food), then Bermuda, New England and up the Hudson/Erie Canal. We were going to go via Newfoundland and Labrador but June remembered that one of the kids is getting married this summer - details, details!
