Hey, if you get one of these speed boats, I am putting my name in for rail meet on your first Mac race from either direction. I do what I am told ( wife taught me well), I deliver the boat if you need it delivered, and I buy drinks at each end. Beat that offer! Please do it within the next 5-10 years as I am old!
Tommy- With an offer like that, you're in! The drinks at both ends even scores you first pick of berths.

blt2ski Actually, I mentioned teh Jeanneau Sun fast series reasonably early in the thread. As they are fairly fast for there size, and nice accommodation's. Henri Jeanneau whom started teh company, made his money initially on designing and building power boats. Then started building sail boats, along with a custom part of the company doing some of the French Atlantic racers, both mono and multi hulls.

Jeanneau has had many designers with known fast boats, Tony Castro, which my 85 Arcadia was designed by, Doug peterson, Daniel Andrieu (sp?) Marc Lambeau.......All designers with fast boats.

chuck5499 everyone can laugh but take a look at jeanneaus - great cruisers and can make of go of it as they will step out - and the misses will enjoy the cabin and all it has to offer - as we all know if you want the family around the admiral has to be taken care of
just my thoughts

blt2ski A couple of others that may work, if not mentioned yet.

Farr 1020, supposed to be one of his favorites, and cruised for awhile with his family. There is one of these in our fleet that is pretty nice.

Mumm 36, altho it may be a bit more sparten that you may like.

My current club racing is all non-spinnaker so crew size is less of an issue. If I decide to jump into some bigger races with a new boat, shouldn't have much trouble picking up crew. Most of the time we race with 2-3, but requires me to do a lot more running than I would prefer. (It's tough being the main, genny trimmer and the bowman. Some how it used to be easier a few years ago!)

chucklesR I'd throw in a catamaran suggestion or two, but I'm a little concerned about what would be suggested back.

Besides, we don't PRHF, we sail.
