Re: Looking for a 32ish ft Pilothouse

Ya, I am pretty aware of the cubic nature of the increase in labour that comes with adding length to the boat... If the we could have planned an Alaska trip around the 24 footer, believe me, we would...

Re: Looking for a 32ish ft Pilothouse

Thanks for the suggestions. The Truant 33 and Rawson 34 would make the cut for sure, just have to wait until there's one for sale.

Re: Looking for a 32ish ft Pilothouse

I neglected to put our budget in the original posting, oops! We are looking in the 20-30k range, and have leeway at that for a 'contigency fund'. You'd think that there's quite a range there...

Re: Cooper pilothouses (353 & 316)

Just wanted to bump this thread up. I'm considering both of these boats, the 316 and the 343. Bella Coola yacht charters has their 316 listed again this year, and there's a few for sale right now. ...
