Boat Candidate options wanted
This is yet another which boat thread but with some very specific specifications.
What boats would you recommend for the following use with the given parameters.
East coast sailing for about one to three years including Bermuda and the islands.
Late model maybe 10 years old.
Standing head room
Two separate cabins with doors besides the main center space.
Shoal draft maybe 5 feet.
Ability to walk around the wheel without having to climb on the side seats.
Price 50k to 120k the age thing is negotiable but the admiral is pretty set on the other items.
But here is the kicker. I would love to have it as small as possible. The further under 40' the happier I would be.
The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.
