But, having said that, i find boat valuation on the west coast to be a little weird. boats worth nothing here are priced at top of market there, and boats that are like gold here are dirt cheap there.

I do like Catalacs as a liveaboard cat. Under $40K they are hard to beat.

How about this one?

It has been for sale for a year or more
Been considering going to have a look at this one as well. I suppose my issue now is that some people say they're acceptable for blue water (with some work) while others say not a chance, which is why I've been staying away from the Gemini 3400 that comes with a new Ford F450 SuperDuty, custom trailer, and the boat (in immaculate condition) for $75k.
