Re: Westerly 33 Ketch as a cruiser/live aboard?
For a single liveaboard, particularly in a climate like Britain, I wouldn't get a small center cockpit boat - a 33 has a small enough interior at the best of times without having to go on deck to access an important part of it.
I would also prefer a cutter rig on a boat that size - similar sail variability options but less rigging, clutter, taller mast, better performance etc.
How about a Storm? Same build quality, much better looking IMHO and probably a much better performer.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
