Re: Pitfalls of trading up?

Shadow, I think we are in the same marina. You have quite a dilemma, moving “up” to even a C30 would be a vast improvement in livability. For me, the 27 is too much like car camping to do on the long term (Mrs. B thinks our 34 is “RV Camping”). Your 27 is a little “vintage” and I don’t think that you will get the biggest bang for the buck when doing upgrades (The outboard version isn’t the most desirable here on the Bay.) I don’t think that you will recover the cost of the cushions in a resale. If you are on a budget, keep the upgrades to a minimum and with the thought of transferring them over to the big boat.
