Re: Need help finding perfect boat!

Just out of curiosity, how many years scuba and sailing experience do you have? You might consider that some of the posters here can help you with their own past experiences/mistakes.

I understand you do not want a power boat but those suggesting ones are trying to help you. No need to cop an attitude. If you are not willing to consider alternatives then sailing may not be for you because it is full of compromises.

As for a cabin, you may think you can control the conditions but if you have spent any time in Florida, you would know that showers/squalls can come up at any time and having a cabin is a plus.
