Stepping up from Paceship PY23 to ?
We plan to keep the PY23 for trailer-able trips and have been discussing a few boats that appeal to us.
1975 IRWIN 10/4 great shape with a wide beam, cozy interior.
1979 Paceship PY26 have not seen boat yet, but I love our PY23.
1978 Cape Dory 25 maybe it's too small in the cabin to actually be considered a bigger boat?
1975 Cape Dory 28 haven't seen the boat yet, but I like the styling of Bristol's and Cape Dory's.
Boat will be kept at a slip and a family of 4 will use it (2 teenage boy's) I'm 6'3 and realize there are very few boats that will allow me to actually stand up in the cabin.
My main concern is room during a weekend out "on the hook" and quality construction with excellent sailing characteristics.
Any comments or suggestions, and I forgot to mention we need to keep the draft below 4 feet.
