Sold My Boat, Now What???

Hi all,

Well, I sold my boat after two long weeks of listing it. It happened so fast that I still have some seller's remorse. I have been looking for a bluewater-capable cruiser for a while and now I can look in ernest (money in hand).

Boats I have looked at so far include the CSY 44, which I really like, Valiant 40, Endeavour 40, Islander Freeport 41, Gulfstar 44, Union Polaris 36, and a Cal 39. All nice boats with different things to offer.

What I am looking for is 40'+ with good build quality and room for under $100K. Speed would be a plus, cutter even better. I want to look at Tayana 37 and 42's, but have not seen any yet, and there is a Bayfield 40 in San Diego that I want to check out.

I am open to suggestions, so let 'em rip. I am in SoCal.

Cheers, Bill
