Re: Need help finding perfect boat!

Look around at the boats taking divers out and around Pennekamp, there is a reason you don't see a lot of sailboats out there. Those reasons are mostly what you state in your criteria of large clear deck, space for crab pots, price, etc. With all that in in mind you are probably looking at an older smaller trawler or a cuddy cabin motor boat. Older Boston Whaler? Any reason why you are looking for a sail boat for diving the keys? Most of your dives will involve either motoring at least one way or tacking like crazy to get in or out a short ways to dive.
