Dont be afraidof a boat thats a little on the heavy side,they are usually built well.
besides if you are going to live abord , a
light fin keeled boat (especially a small
one) will not sit as well at anchor.
A heavyer boat will give a better motion
in a seaway , will be safer in rough weather and will take a grounding better
because its ballast is fully incapsulated.
Boating is a trade-off.Read some books!

adrianjg,
The Hunter is an ok boat as long as you don''t go offshor on them. The phrase, ''Life''s too short to go offshore in an Irwin'' might apply to Hunter as well.

I am considering buying a hunter 34 as a starting boat and liveaboard. Does any one have any information on the hunter especially on the compression problem with them.

El,
Although you may not be interested in my boat ''Daze Off'' I have lived aboard and sailed over 4000 miles in 3.5 years, I/we have survivied two hurricanes (Floyd and Michelle) and would like to recommend you look at ALUMINIUM.
I have too much to tell you, you can either ask or look at my own home site at http://us.geocities.com/moredazeoff/
Good luck - it took me 2 years!!!

We have a 1973 center cockpit 37 Irwin for sale in very good condition for $32,000. It has two berths in a large aft cabin with it''s own head (the forward V-berth has it''s own head as well. Solid hand laid fiberglass hull, pre-blister era, 5/16" 1x19 standing rigging, shoal draft. If you''d like more details- email TaffBerrian@msn.com

We''ve looked at the older Tartans. Great, well built vessel, but the "old" traditional layout just doesn''t work for us after being aboard newer boats, ie: Pearson, Bavaria, Bene., Hunter.

For under 75k, we are really leaning towards the Pearson 36 tri-cabin. Of the bunch, they seem to be the better built. I still want to get aboard an Islander CC and a newer C&C. I''m not not familiar with their construction or sailing characteristics. Any thoughts?

Consider a Tartan 37. The 4 foot draft with a swing keel would be great for the short water in the Keys and Bahamas. Great sailing S&S design. Plenty of room for 2. Hold their value. I have watched the average price of late 70s T37 raise from $45k to $65k in the last 5 years.

I checked our "a1line". A total waste of time!! No info, strictly commercial.
