What would you buy for $100,000?
Agree, If you have the need to scurry all over the place at the fastest speed possible at all times, you could get in your car and drive to those destinations, or rent a helicopter or a (godforbid) Bayliner. With a full keel, you can sail all night long through the densest field of crab pot floats..... and still really enjoy yourself.
Nothing can equal the pleasure of a fast boat; but, you dont need to be "state of the art" or nervously adhereing to the latest transitory ''fads'' to enjoy oneself.... and still enjoy the full essence of sailing, more in enjoyment of the "trip" than hurrying manic-like to the destination. Why the rush?
