Tayana 42 or PS 37
Been boat shopping, found two that speak to me- an 84 Tayana Vancouver 42 and a 87 PS 37. Yes, I know they're totally different boats, but I'm looking for an off shore capable cruiser that the admiral can be comfortable in.
What can you tell me about how these boats sail and handle? (Mostly sailing short handed)
Order of magnitude difference in maintenance between a 42 and 37? (Tayanna has teak decks that need to be replaced within the next 5 years or so, but it is about 15k less)
What about exterior vs interior chain plates? (Pros and cons)
Both boats have Perkins engines with about 1200 hours on them, otherwise similarly equipped.
