Boat choice

Jeff,

I am absolutely floored (and if you knew me, you'd know that's not an easy task). I cannot believe that you took the time to write such a comprehensive answer for my benefit. I am very...

Please help

Okay, well, I guess that answers the Tartan 3500 objection question. There seems to be a strong concensus against. So, Tayana 37? Any major objections? I see they have an active website, but...

35'

Okay, per your suggestion about less than more, that would lead me to a Tartan 3500, most likely.

Please help - cont.

Cruisingdad,

Thanks for the bluntness.

That's another vote for Valiant. So, Valiant and Tayana seem to be running close for my purposes, and I still do like the Tartan.

My credit right now...

Please help, thus far...

2 votes for Tayana, one liked Tartan and one for Valiant.

That said, this being my first day, you are all being very cool. I appreciate it.

Ha! Didn't consider the failing one head at sea. Another interesting point.

Per the cat question, I have looked into them, but I prefer the...

Singlehandedly, primarily.

Yes, first boat. Didn't realize the insurance issue.

Yes, that is the price rance I am looking for. It's their lack of similarities that makes it difficult.

From what I've gathered, and I'm the first to admit my knowledge is limited, the Bene is...
