Re: Thinking about upgrading...
I've given it a lot of thought. My wife and I both love the look of the Ericson, but she's afraid it still presents us with the same problems we have now. Though much larger and nicer than our current Ericson, we're still forced to sleep in the V Berth with our feet cramped - which is a deal killer for her.
My concern with the Beneteau is if we decide to do some cruising - not across the ocean, just maybe down to the Virgin Islands or up to Maine in a few years, would the Beneteau be able to handle any unexpected conditions.
