Sailormann Almost forgot - this boat has an aft cabin and it's fast too - someone is trying to sell it to me but I'm not going to buy it. Haven't looked at it but it is apparently in good shape ...

hellosailor A Pearson 424 could do. They made a couple of interiors, two with an aft master cabin of different designs, two heads, and usually two berths plus two sea berths in the main cabin, so you've got three cabins (with separate deck access from each) and plenty of room for two guys in the center cabin.

Sailormann Okay - ignore me now but don't come asking for free DVD's when I have my own infomercial far as boats with aft cabins go, that might be affordable, Beneteau made most of them. C&C made some (be careful of the cored hulls). There are a couple of CSY and Irwin models with center cockpits and aft cabins. Something to consider seriously would be ferrocement boats. If you get a good one, they are the best deal going....the older the hull gets, the stronger it gets.

You know how it is; they pack them in so tight itís hard to negotiate a sunfish in the Chicago Harbors.

You can go with a Cat if you get a Mooring in Monroe Harbor. As you know, Monroe only has Mooring Cans. There are a couple of Cats in there and a really large one as well; I think around 50ft.

I was in Monroe for over 25 years. Itís not a bad harbor if you can deal with the occasional 3 footers at your mooring. Also have to deal with the Tenders, parking, crowds, etc... But its a great place to see Fireworks, Boat Parades, and lots of drunken Landlubbers.

Idiens The Dutch make some great floating homes, very tank like and they sail well down wind when released from theŪr moorings.

But actually this belongs to CD's practical solutions to environmental warming thread.

singlesail5 Ok, if all your worried about is she'll stay afloat and enough berths, 4+, look at the Dufours Atoll 43. Not a CC but enough room below with 4 doubles, and 2 singles. And if you watch real close you can catch one below 100K. Haven't sailed one but have been on 3 that made me say hmmmm, this would be a good layout for Charter.

2STF2 Sailormann-------there are 4 of us as of now a 5th might join. But we can say 4 if it makes it easier for you and whoever else. And no, not just a floating "nookie" place but thats part of it, christ we are sailiors....hormone overload?... right hands? come on now...
We got condos on terra firma..great advice though, id recommend you do the same...

I didnt ask for your advice on real estate investment..i asked for your opinions and advice on lets get back on track.

Sailormann Okay - we've got more information now ... there are four guys except when the one with the schizoid tendencies forgets to take his medication and then there are five, but we'll assume that the two of him are never in the same place at the same time, so let's go with four for now...and you've each got a max of 5K. So you've got 20K to work with and you're looking for a floating nookie palace. I can't imagine a banker being hesitant to lend four individuals suffering from serious hormone overload 80 thousand American dollars so that they can give their right hands a rest....

Here's a thought. Incorporate - 4 partners. Take your 20K and buy a condo as a business investment. Maintain it decently and rent it out. Keep sailing the cats and partying as you have been. In five years, sell the apartment, split the money and you can each go out and buy your own boats. If you still want to be together then you can get slips near each other in the marina. The banks will probably take that seriously...
