I have a wife and two kids as well, and this boat is perfect for us. They're definitely within your budget, but you need to be sure you get a good one. There are lots of dogs out there. PM me if you want to discuss. And good luck.
Thanks! I decided to postpone the purchase: I joined the club and will rent boats for awhile. I'll buy a boat next season - I'll hold you to your offer to discuss it then.

at all. Your suggestion of putting on a satellite dish makes far more sense. But, as we all know, you aren't going to be getting the programming selection that we've all come to expect. I'm watching Bonanza right now, and the Beverly Hillbillies is on after that. Your satellite provider is giving you reruns of Charles in Charge. Not that I don't like Charles in Charge. I just think that Full House is better. You're new to sailing, aren't you?
Bev. Hillbillies is my alltime fav. Although being left without TV is not the worst thing as far as I am concerned: cut my broadband - then you'll hurt me for real!
Yep, I am new to sailing, but plan to change that...

CharlieCobra CD, they seem to be well put together boats. Did ya cruise yours in weather? If so, how'd she handle? Did ya fly a chute? What kind of speed did ya see at say 5, 10, 15 and 20 knots? How'd she point? Any issues with keeping the ultra leather clean? Any things to watch for that's particular to the C-380?

Valiente Renting is a great idea in your local waters, and after a couple of years of crewing and renting, you can charter something 35 feet or so in the B.V.I.s

This will predispose the missus to the cruising life.
