Unfortunately, Melyea, I'd guess he's joking.... That's a sad reality about boats and upgrading.. figure that Steve would need to spend $200K or more to make the switch, if you realistically quantify what he'd gain (over what he's already got) seems to me it's hard to justify... esp if he's upgraded his existing boat with goodies the 'new' one doesn't yet have.

Ahhh... now you get to the rub of many C400 owners. The answer to your question lies in a riddle:

What is the draft of a Mark II C400? (It is a trick question).
