A couple of examples that come to mind are cockpit size and companionway size that both can be addressed if you know the specs on what they ought to be.

Interesting. You linked to Nautical Mind.com and I got Amazon, despite the fact that I live a 25 minute walk from Nautical Mind's compact shop and buy 50% of my books there.

as Mr. Dog indicated.

If I had just five books to bring around the world, it would be this, Heavy Weather Sailing, The Voyager's Handbook, Calder's Boatowner's Mechanical and Electrical Manual, and Calder's Marine Diesel Engines, despite the overlap of the last two.

As a bonus, Jimmy Cornell's World Cruising Routes, Wally Ross's Sail Power and Earl Hinz's Complete Book of Anchoring.

Not light reading, any of them, but very good reference works for the offshore cruiser.

wmurray1010 Sailingdog, Would you believe I have that book on the shelf I think. I will check when we fly back home tomorrow from PHX. Thanks for the link...it jogged my memory as I hadn't read that book in quite awhile.
(It gets worse the older you get.)

wmurray1010 Thanks Sailor Mitch. I heard you were the Pearson guru, but couldn't email you as I didn't have 10 posts yet. Your reply sounds mostly positive. I will query some of the 385 owners. We sold a Tayana V42 in Sept. with the thought of downsizing a little and the plan of the 385 looks almost identical to the V42. We sailed the V42 from Puget Sound off shore to Souther Cal and it will be hard to beat the comfort of that boat. But it's a bit much for us to handle and I'm thinking a 38 would be ok...
