Re: What boat to buy, I only have a few comments.
Re: Keels. Bolt-on=Bolt-off. I would never go cruising with a bolt-on keel. It must be poured and internal. That's just me...who has hit a rock and survived because my keel was poured.
Keel shape: Modifed Fin Keel. Period. Skeg hung rudder. Period. No sail drive. Period.
For two people, I would go with 44'. With 4 people, or two with 2 kids, I'd go with 50'. For two people who entertained a lot like we did, 50'.
That's tonight's advice!
