CD,

Thanks for the input.

Two of my friends have C400's so I am very familiar with them and like them a lot.

Last may I did the DelMarVa circum nav (36 hr offshore passage) on a C400 - comfortable boat.

I prefer the interior cabinetry of the C400's, Love the big galley and am aware of the bigger HW such as winches.

I prefer the Bene 423/473 exterior look and I think they are faster boats.

The (only) thing that concerns me the most about the C400 (and that was the thing that I really liked 1 year ago) is the Queen sized aft birth. I think it may be a bit claustrophobic, possibly with poor ventilation (that's what I hear) compared to a centerline queen in the bow as per Bene 423. I also think that headroom above the bed may not be conducive to certain activities

Your right about the girl, mine is Irish and I can barely afford her.

Hon much for the dog?
