Re: Looking at this...comments welcome

I looked for a couple of years at custom metal boats. This one looks like they did a nice job finishing the interior. I ended up with a professionally built aluminum hull, round hull. She is now listed on the boats for sale custom aluminum bluewater cruiser. Decided after doing a lot of deliveries that performance was really important if you don't want to motor around all the time. I saved so much in fuel and having a smaller fuel tank, a lot of weight. As you don't sail well you keep adding more weight and then sail even worse.
