Thanks for the welcome!
Yes, I did see the 40 footer a couple of weeks ago. I was even intimidated by the 37 footer, but that extra three feet or so makes things even more intimidating on the 40 footer. Like icebergs, boats look a lot bigger out of water. We'll see if the 40 footer is discounted 'a lot' I might look closer at it, but seems to me the 37 footer is more my style. I wish they had a 34 footer made already. They're making one for someone right now as a matter of fact. Maybe that's the route I ought to take.
The 37 footer is standard draft. At 5'10' things can get a little close in Pamlico Sound, but, hopefully that's just a warm up for places like The Bahamas. I'll definitely look to sail it between Morehead City, Wilmington and Charleston, SC. Since I live in Charlotte (about 200 miles inland) I have a couple of options of where to keep it. Additionally, I have my 'peeps' in all three places, including a sister who lives in Charleston.
Does anyone here sail a 37 footer with the standard draft in and around Eastern N.C.?
Thanks again for the welcome. Sailnet is a great forum. I keep up a little forum for my local windsurfing club, and between monitoring for spam and contributing, they can take a lot of time. Generally, sailors are the most courteous of people. I guess our concern for each other on the water carries over to land.
