Good luck,

Look at the companionway stairs -- very few. I think that says no headroom... otherwise it looks like a nice boat.

It may also be that the Newport 33 doesn't have a bridge deck, so it has a very low climb out of the cabin... If you look at photo 3, you'll see the companionway goes to the cockpit sole or very close to it.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Jeanneau Sunshine

I'll second Marty's recommendation of the mid 80's Jeanneaus. I got a 1986 Jeanneau Sunshine 36 with a factory option sugar scoop a few years back and it is a great boat. We too have a family of 4 (girls 12 & 17) so the three cabin layout gives everyone their own space and room for the kids to invite friends along. The sugar scoop is very handy and most of the 36's I see have them. The Sunshines can be had for $45k - $60k depending on the condition and accessories. While the girls were away at camp last summer my wife and I spent three weeks cruising Desolation Sound and the Sunshine was extremely comfortable to live on. A great light air boat too.

Marty,

Been too busy at work to follow up on STYC, racing, etc.... Did get down to Blake Island for an overnight weekend before last. Got in a full day of sailing taking the long way back.

Let me know if you need crew sometime - Bob
