Re: First Boat for Family of Six (in Oz)
Hi BenT! I'm a bit late to this party (for various reasons including too much real work to do) but am glad you're seriously thinking of buying a REAL boat.
If you're looking at a Clansman, perhaps it'd be worth looking at an older Northshore or a Duncanson for much the same $$$?? ..or there's a nice timber Nicholson 32 for sale in Brisbane
Hopefully whatever you do get will be good enough for the HCW.. to save Old Fuzzy the trip north.
