Re: Good Blue Water / Shallow Water Compromise
May also wish to look at older Hinckley B40s or the smaller Shannons. They are definitely "centerboard blue water boats". Given they are narrow with external teak to maintain their prices have come down quite a bit. However, owners tend to take very good care of these jewels and they were built right from the start so even an old one is likely to be Bristol fashion.
