Re: Looking for and thoughts on my next boat 40 to 50 '
Not sure the Endeavour would be at the top of the list. Had a 40 for a number of years, and found the build quality so so once you get past the glossy woodwork, i.e. main bulkhead not tabbed to deck, tanks in keel, masonite drawer bottoms, etc. But the main drawback is it's truly mediocre as a sailboat. Very comfortable at anchor and lots of storage, but poorly mannered under sail, not to mention slow up wind.
