Man - leave for a few hours to spend some quality time with my chiropractor and wife (in that order (g), and I find T34 in classic form. Now we know what he TRUELY wants by his subliminal suggestion. Just go for it T3 - perfect for those windless Chessie days, and will surely make you the envy of your yacht club friends.
Now, John - that perky and firm little boat gave me a woody, a very pretty daysailer and raises my bar. I haven't done a search on her yet, but judging by pic 3, she's very trailer-able with a centerboard I presume. Nice - thanks for the link.
My parameters are a bit sketchy right now. There are two issues I'm dealing with - first, find a sailboat for daysails for myself and others who have equal appreciation. Problem is, it's a selfish purchase, not the cure-all panacea. The alternate is a mid-size, stiff sailboat to hopefully overcome my wife's heeling paranoia, with enough amenities to at least do weekenders. This of course requires a mooring or marina - extra expenses. This, ideally, would lead to a larger cruising sailboat.
Budget needs to be low for the daysailer option - knowing a big boat will eventually come about. If my wife wins over me with her trawler dreams, I would keep the sailboat. Ideally, the next boat will be the perfect one - without the need for having two boats.
So, dealing with my demons at the moment - at another indecision. I made the wrong choice with the Nauticat - don't want to do it again.
