We're looking for what would be considered a "blue water" boat. We've had our share of good, seaworthy craft, but would really like something that is happiest (secure) in a moderate blow, easy to reef and sea kindly. So far I've been eying; Southern Cross 31-35s, Westsails, Valiant 40s (a little too pricey for us but you get the idea). Our budget is under 50K. And oh ya, not too keen on a saltwater boat, we live closest to L. Michigan (Wisconsin side) and would be sailing the big lake, from one end to the other, in fresh water. What would be some more boats to add to this (small) list?
