Do tell!! Details?

We've owned this past boat for nearly 8 years, continually improving things. We moved down from 40 feet, and don't wish to go bigger again, but are looking for newer, more cockpit space and better galley arrangements.

Though we've listed on Craigslist and are doing some fender kicking we won't do the '2 boat program'. We had a great outing this past weekend and I'm very torn about selling her at all, truth be told. I suppose that's a good place to be.. if it doesn't sell we're not really unhappy, if she does then maybe we'll get some of our wishlist items.

And then there's the 'buyers market' situation which doesn't really do one any good if you're on both sides of the transactions...
