This is actually in eply to danno, What boat to buy? Years and years ago I was sailing with a Dr friend MD type on his 47 ft classic teak cutter he pulled me over as we passed a TBird 26 ft He said "see that TBird that is Dr --- he and I are surgeons together, He built that boat in his garage, litterally a boat built by a surgeon. He had the joy and therapy of doing something other than his work and that is his boat. I wanted to sail too so I spent my time doing extra surgery not building a boat and I took lessons on a school boat and got my recreation, pleasure sailing and learning experience too, with the extra money from the surgerys I did I bought this boat." HIs point to me? do alot of what you dobestfor money,do what you do fun, don''t do what you don''t do. stay focused. Therefore,I am not repairing my car or my washing machine. Does that help?

danno,
enjoy either way build or buy, consider the time factor, one thing I note is my personal experience of Cabo Rico I''m 6''2" and 250 plus and the hatches and design interior on the CAbo was 20% less than I needed. just a note If I were 5"10 and 150 or less ok
Med school yes well where ever the money is thats the thing to do
