Awesome... great philosophy.

Right now I am in head check mode. Working out what works for our budget. So, what I am getting from this thread is that I should either (a) buy a super cheap boat that has an excellent hull/deck and then plan on replacing everything as a matter of course, or (b) just spend the majority of the money I was budgeting for a refit and buy a better boat that doesn't require all that refit.

Option a would allow us to customize the boat with equipment that is best for us but option b would allow us to get going sooner.

Our biggest issue is that we are going to have to live on that boat for at least a year at a marina before we head out, so the boat needs to be relatively comfortable for my wife as she needs to dress nicely for work and what not.
