Feels right is so important. We looked at quite a few boats before we bought the old dear, but within five minutes of boarding my other half announced this was it. Thankfully t.o.d. then passed all other questions put to her with flying colours so it was a good result.
When last we went to the Sydney boat show, I was a bit worried that Ms TDW would fall in love with with a plastic fantastic but she proved herself to be better than that. Mind you the idiot (I think) Hunter salesman who waxed eloquent about the fan and drainer in the dinnerware cabinet did himself no favours while the Island Packet fella who spoke only of sailing gear won her over. Where the heck she thinks I am going to find the money to buy a bloody Island Packet 42 though, I have no idea. :-)
