the ones I've been collecting info on are from 35' to 40', one really nice 35, and two nice 38's.
Been out with friends on their 42' ketch, and liked the handling of it, he laughs about people saying they're complicated, watching him handle lines without leaving the wheel is interesting. His cockpit layout helps that. Its an older wooden boat, but as people say, its a lot of maintenence which they love.
There seems to be a lot of light displacement small boats available which scare me off. The storage is a big item for me, as well as tankage and water. Still have found a couple that are beginning to fit the vision I have. Its shaking out. Got all winter to look.
I appreciate all of the good info.
