What's your dream boat?

If you could own any older sailboat fully refurbished and in mint condition, let's say between 35 and 45 feet what would it be and why?

OK - I'll play....

For long range or offshore... Passport 40

For coastal cruising.... maybe a Catalina 42 mKII

Son of a .....

I wanted to say Passport 40, w/ pullman berth, but Faster beat me to it...

I suppose that's why his handle is what it is...

What I have, suits me just fine. Does what I need, gets me where I want to be, and lets me enjoy doing it. Lot more fun living the dream (even if on hold for a bit), than dreaming about something I won't ever have. But that's just an old curmudgeon's viewpoint
