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.
