I looked at the Niagra 35 and wopuld have bought one, but couldnt find one in as good as condition as our C&C 35 at the time.

Funny the boat you have 45.5 and the 41.1 as well as the Mason 43 and 44 are on our very short list. I have been on a number of 45.5. The are sweet boats and perfect for wahat we want to do when we retire.

I follow your trip religously. She has seemed stout enough and comfortable for it.
