Re: Shilshole Marina

I keep my boat there and know several liveaboards. It's a great marina, a sailor's marina. Not a lot of amenities on premises, but a ton within a mile (in nearby Ballard).

Hopefully they'll replace the 350 with a similar length boat drawn in proportion to the 375. It's a bit too fat and flat (bottomed) for me, but the length is perfect for a coastal cruiser. Maybe a...

I switched to a Campbell Sailor a few years ago and noticed more power, and along with that more prop walk. That wasn't a bad thing -- the prop walk is strong enough now I can make use of it.

There are a ton of mid-30 ft cruisers with 6'3" headroom, some with 6'4". More headroom can be found, but most of those are newer and longer boats.

I'm happy with my 34 footer, except for headroom, so I'll probably go up a few feet if it'll let me stand up straight (or nearly so). No reason to go bigger than that unless we move aboard.
