Re: Is that a dude captaining that boat!? Helllooo!!

Is there even such a thing as a good head? Sure people dress them up with electric pumps and sanitizers, but everyone I've ever been in is way too small and has me banging my knees against the door on a tiny seat! Why not knock off some of that salon space no one ever uses and give it a decent go?

The ventilation system looks amazing.

And if you add a second hole in the floor the ladies can wash their hands,..

Re: Is that a dude captaining that boat!? Helllooo!!

With the kind of boats we're talking about and that head, in particular, I don't think ladies' niceties will be a problem. They won't come near it!

Do you think those blue barrels are just for buoyancy or are they also the holding tanks? May explain the slight list!

Re: Is that a dude captaining that boat!? Helllooo!!

Some boats have "salons" and others have "saloons." Easy to tell which is feminine versus masculine.

Ok, most people are taking the piss, and rightly so.

I'd say the two boats that will get you made fun of are late model hunters and MacGregor 26s. Other than that, you're pretty safe. Only the latter is in your price range.

Hmm so seems pretty unanimous to me, the hunter is the primary females choice for an entry level boat.

That isn't what was said at all: even a woman would be laughed at on those.

Hahaha, too funny. Kind of the ugly duckling of the sailing world then. I have seen quite a few up for sale, possibly the reason why.

Actually C&C's and Aloha's make sense for a budget boat that is still very cool and sails well. The Aloha 30 is a real light weight boat that is fairly quick but not as heavily built as the 32 and 34.

Thanks, good to know. I particularly like the interior design of the aloha boats, I saw a couple of 27'-28' that I wouldn't mind taking home. Haven't seen any 30 footers near me however. The C&C's are just a nice boat in general, a bit more to choose from too.

The Aloha's have maintained a good reputation and if you can find a nice one you won't be sorry you made that decision, good cruisers.

One way to ensure people don't think it's a chic-boat is to mimic Don Johnson from his Miami Vice days. Keep a crocodile tied-up on-board.

For bonus points, name him Elvis.
