|dwightgry||Thanks for all the replies! I looked at the Gemini last year at the Miami boat show, and talked to Tony Smith there also. It is a nice boat, but I feel (perhaps wrongly) that it would be better to buy a more "substantial" boat. At present the top contenders are a PDQ 36, Prout 38 (new generation), and a Lagoon TPI 37. These three seem to all have similarities that apeal to me. I will be sailing in the Bahamas this spring on my Pearson 323 and will try to get on board a few cats if the opportunity arises. The purchase timeframe loks to be fall of '09, pending what the whole economy is doing, and the value of the Canuck buck.|

Love the PDQ 36'
6'4" (headroom) What I like most about the PDQ accommodations is the layout of the forward berths....I prefer a side entrance to berths...eliminates that whole "making the bed while you're on top of it" dilemma. Feels like sleeping quarters instead of the otherwise "tube" berth (going in for another MRI tonite). ; )

Love the PDQ 36'
I've been watching all the PDQ 36's for sale, even considered making an offer on a PDQ 34' which is the predecessor of the 36. Convinced the 36' is the better boat with extended 'head' room for a shower. Been on Gemini 105 Mc, my brother has one, and I still would hold out for a PDQ. I would insist on a hard dodger/bimini too. There are Wildcats and just saw an "American Multihull" that looks interesting! Plus all the French boats, Pajot, etc. The Canadian PDQ is a solid boat with high quality construction. May also want to check out the older 32' Catfisher, if you're looking for deals. I like the 36' size for 1 or 2.
Waiting for the right deal and the real estate market~

Be aware that you should have your company name in both your title and signature. Please read the full disclosure policy that is located HERE.
Let me add that Will Hershfeld is one of the people I know from Performance Cruising, and a good egg.

I'll second Will's (Whersheld) recommendation on Gemini's, and I don't even work there
I am a tad bit biased, but you can't do better for the money.
