Maybe a little longer (55'-65') but no more beam. New construction but still wood- Teak or Wana planking on Angelique frames No plastic or steel for me, thanks

Nope, not hiring... remember I said if I started a successful business I have plenty of plans to start businesses, and I assume eventually one of them will be successful, but I doubt it will be successful enough to get me a Perini Navi. Right now I'm just plodding along in my "career" job. Even if I never manage to get out of this, I should still be able to get a pretty nice boat in 10 years, I think. I'm only 26 (and single, no kids), so I should be able to save up money.

Nothing real expensive but I sure would like a C&C 99. That is my pick for the perfect boat for me and my type of sailing.

I think we already have her. She's large enough for comfortable cruising, yet small enough for 2 people to easily manage her.

It's not my fault they named a movie after our boat

I would say more so than a HC or PSC, I would think those two were more comparible to my Tayana which I would not put in a comparison with a Cheoy Lee of the same size

I'm as close to a expert as east is to west though
