Don't get me wrong, I like a woman that can get dirty and dress down when required, but if it's like camping all the time, I think it will affect our "relationship." lol. I find most women also like their man clean and well groomed, so having the ability to stay clean and be reasonably comfortable is a necessity for me.

Go smaller and go sooner.

I still love my old Westsail 32. A bullet proof offshore cruiser. I would just put a 45 hp diesel in it when I wanted to plow to windward.

Go for it.
I've read as much bad as I have good about the Westsails, but mostly with regards to the speed (or lack of it) under sail or power. It seems to be as bullet proof as you can get safety wise. Can you recommend any others in that range you think I could outfit for $80k or less? Thanks!
