Yea, it is kind of complicated, the house is for the kids (and wife) while the boat will be for me. House was a deal, and cheaper than rent, and will hopefully have some value when the wife buys me out, or we sell.

But that does limit the funds I have to spend.

Yea, it is my understanding that the 36-2 and 37-2 (aka the condo boat with built in TV and Microwave) and the 38 (added sugar scoop) are all based on the same Hull. I do like the idea layout of the 36-2 but have not seen one in person. I am kind of going crazy now, as I am getting revved up for the purchase. I just bought a house and am getting the family moved into that and I get to move out as soon as they are settled. Long story, but looks like May is when I want to be able to splash.

Re: Pearson 36

If I'm remembering them correctly, the P36 is a nice boat for sailing. Where the P365 is targeted a little more towards the folks who might want to squeeze a very small billiards table in the salon. Nice, just targeted to different purposes.

In port or living aboard, wide spaces are nice. At sea in rough wx, wide spaces just mean a better chance of getting thrown further and landing harder with less to grab onto.

Horses for courses.

different but also quite nice, if I could find one in my price range (not set yet, but looking to be under 30,000) I would snatch it but likely to need a lot of work.
