This would be my fourth boat...

Can you practically put six in a Lido 14? If so I would give the Harbor 14 a good look.

Bamazeb is on a distinguished road
See if there are any O'Day 22s out there. Ours was a '76 model. Cockpit seats 4 comfortably. Plenty of deckspace for 2 more. Shoal Draft Keel. 2 Ft draft. We trailored ours all over the country with a 69 Pontiac Ventura. Alabama to Detroit to DC back to Bama. Dad was a Coastie we moved a lot!!
