Re: Compared to a CSY 44

For inexpensive and large boats for ICW and Caribbean the Endeavors are good candidates as are the Morgan OI/Classics and both, in my opinion (read opinion) are better values than the CSY 44 if you...

Re: Liveaboard - Houston/Galveston

Check out Portofino. They are dockominiums, but many for lease. There was a number dumped by a single owner the past couple years, so you might find a good deal. The parking situation is good...

Re: Fuel Consumption

I would say .25 to .75 GPH depending on how you push it. Fill the tank and run it for an hour, then use a one gallon can to top it off. You will come close. Also a good way to find your sweet...
