Thanks in advance to anyone who can some time and experience :)

Don,
Thanks for your reply anyway.
I'm now looking at a double ender 38' fiberglass schooner.
Confusing myself :)

Carl,

I would ditch the idea of both. Both boays are specialised and neither looks good for a cruise.

The double ender schooner will be a maintenance nightmare which could send you broke.

Just because a boat LOOKS like it should be in a South Seas postcard it doesnt mean its any good for it.

Its a difficult starting position when looking at boats... Everyone has different advice.
