Re: Help With Boat Selection

All 3 good choices, I would consider the Baba as well.

In my opinion an electric windlass is a must for a cruiser. Given the displacement of the boats you are looking at you will want about 10mm chain and about 75 meters. Pulling that up in say 40-50 feet of water will convince you the first time to get electric (with manual backup). For me the most important "luxuries" are autopilot and windlass
