Thanks for taking time during what is undoubtedly a really busy time for you and yours. Good to hear your only loss was trees, could have been much worse.
To awnser your questions to my question,
Retired at 45, (fire department) "We", be Momma (the Boss) and I, (Don''t let anyone kid you, She IS the boss, she only looks dainty and innocent till you piss her off!)and occasionaly (hopefully) one or both of our boys would join us. (22&16)
We''ll be sailing southern Lake Michigan for a few years, the "Plan" then involves coastal cruising, the east coast, ICW to Florida, the islands, would love to go way north, (you''ve heard this all before) The thing is, if we get a hair and wanna go, we''d like a boat that''ll allow us to get there comfortably and safely without self-destructing, wherever "there" might be.
Although we''d rather not be last into the dock, speed isn''t that important to us but we would like a well handling, solid, balanced boat.
Our initial budget is up to 40k with 20 left for refit.
Why 28-32''? Smaller, easier, less expensive, less to maintain, et.al.
If you think this size isn''t prudent, other than size for storage, tankage, why not smaller?
Did I mention I like cutters and/or clipper bows?
Again Jeff, thanks for giving your time. I''m sure everyone who reads these posts are glad you made it thru the hurricane relativly unscathed.
