Welcome Dave. If single handings the game...suggest 35-40' might be better for you. Check out the blue water boats list sticky under the buying a boat thread.

Thanks for the welcome and the link, and you're right although I would'nt go it alone at any time. I like the idea of having a bit of room to spare considering I'm in the process of selling the land base, I might just need all the room I can get. Iv'e considered the cost factor as well and think 42' - 43' might just be right. I'm open to all advice and it's welcomed and aprecieated, Thankyou, Dave

Double handed is a whole different story...I agree that a 40+ foot boat is much better. My wife & I cruised on 52' so I was really just referring to a singlehanded situation.
Have fun looking!

Thanks again,

there sure is an ocean of information to wade through I'm enjoying it all the same, have no idea on a partner as yet although I'm sure something will come along when I least expect it :-)

Cheers Dave

Good luck! My wife and I took the plunge just a few weeks ago and are still working on getting the boat in the water. We're going small, a 33-footer.
