Crusing -Catalina or Newport?

I would not limit myself to the Newport or Catalina. There are a lot of other boats out there that meet your specs.

A quick check on Boattraderonline.com showed Ericsons, Tartans, Cal, Rangers, etc.
While there is nothing wrong with the Catalinas or the Newports. I would not exclude other boats.

As long as we are going completely off topic - I''d have to beg to differ with you on the made vs. started issue.

Some people get married for just the wrong reasons. Or, more importantly they never take the time to dicusss the life issues like goals and priorities whether they are financial, with kids, where you want to be five, ten, twenty years down the road etc. Not that where you want to be today is really what will happen, but if you''ve never dicussed it then you may be in for some rude awakenings.

Not that these people can''t make it work, but when you are married to someone you really shouldn''t be (e.g. you want six kids and a hhouse in the country, she grossed out by children and wants that high powered partnerhsip in a Manhattan law firm someday), the odds can be pretty much against you.

Also attitude about marriage going in is a factor. I recall hearing about two young women dicussing one of them getting married, as well as the possiblity of getting a tatoo. The comment from one of them "but the tatoo is permanent!"

I got lucky the 1st time. Not everyone does; I''ve known enough bad-marriage stories to understand some of the ragging.

Wives and sailing are a discussion topic unto itself. It surprises me how many times you hear about a guy that decides he needs to cruise the world. His wife doesn''t share the dream, so off he goes without her (saw a post like that a couple days back on this board somewhere).

Of course, it''s also surprising what a nightmare we can make sailing for our wives. How many couples end up fighting over on the water atrocious behavior (yelling, impatience, etc.) from the male half of the team.

For me, if I couldn''t take her along I wouldn''t want to go. Of course, if I couldn''t take her along I probably couldn''t AFFORD to go, but that''s another issue...

Thanks guys for standing up for your wives. I am not married anymore but still get SO tired of the comments about how "all women want to do is get their hooks in us", and "life is better without the ball and chain" from the guys.

Geez, seems like I''ve been hanging around the wrong kind of men, huh?

Maybe - - just maybe - - there are still guys out there who appreciate equality, being treated well, companionship, etc. Marriage is a partnership, not a dictatorship.

Second that - my wife is a tremendous sport. Let''s me spend a stupid amount of money that she''s earned on really nice toys. And she''ll come out to play too.

Last B-Day, I asked her for one thing - just to LOOK at a new boat. That was it. We put an offer on it two days later.

Can''t knock that.
