Re: 30' Tri - I know she ain't liveaboard...
Well, nothing for the time being. I think I've decided that a monohull anywhere near my price range isn't what I'm looking for. I don't like the layout of most tri's for long term use. I don't have enough money on hand to buy a proper Cat yet.
I think a Cat is the way to go for me. I should be able to afford something along the lines of a Lagoon 410/440 in a year or so. In the mean time I'm looking for an old powerboat or trawler purely for liveaboard. I figure if I get a year or so out of it, I can give it to someone who needs a place when I'm ready to move up to a Cat.
