Re: Sailing characteristics ?

If finding the most room for the money is your primary goal, then then the Hunter's and Catalina's of the world is what you ought to be looking for. Personally I like Catalina's over Hunter's but that is just based on their reputation. I have done very little sailing on either.

You have figured early in your search that a character boat with lots of upkeep and varnishing is a lot work. You will probalby spend more time out sailing and relaxing on your boat than the guy slaving away on his blue water cruiser.
always in decline-never hitting bottom
