To answer your question, yes, some, others are about half a continent away, it seems logical, even reasonable to ask on an open forum for input on them. I have been researching them as I go along, and develop perceptions on them, I'd rather not just go with that and the brokers statements for my only input. Before I do any surveys I will be first ruling out any that wont work for me, and once I have some reasonable sounding ones I'll go look at them. Seems reasonable to me. As all are a day or mores driving minimum it seems logical to get all the input that I can before making a several days trip.

This IS an open forum isnt it ? It IS about buying a boat isnt it ? Anyone who doesnt want to respond has no requirement to.

Or did I miss something here ?

Anyhow, thanks for your input, it is appreciated. It really is.
IMHO, this is exactly what this forum is for. If people do have responsive knowledge, 95% of posters are happy to show it off. Do not hesitate to ask these questions.

might want to take a weekender to chicago, i just did a search, came up with about 30 boats, not all blue water, but what the hell its a good way to waste a sunday. there seems to be a broker with a bunch of sail & power listings, I don't know, or know of them, but give 'em a call, tell them you want to crawl over some at the docks, maybe they'll let you.

We are not primarily on earth to see through one another, but to see one another through

Some people are like slinkies: not really good for anything... but you can't help laughing when you push them down the stairs
