Great replies everyone.

Anything you would change to the overall design of the boat? We had a few replies regarding the table position and style but anything else?

More beam for more stability. Obviously that's not going to happen.

I need a cockpit bed unfortunately centre cockpit on a 30' boat means benches too short to stretch out on ...........but I have a cunning plan - possibly including a cockpit table (it's that table thing again ). But that's all down the list a bit............

Oh, and a bowprit

get rid of the wood burning stove in the center of the saloon,move to somewhere between 23south and 23north,to pay for this i guess we would have to sell the children.

Any body want to buy two fully boat trained children,both have done circumnavigations,low maintanance,boy 12 only needs internet connection and coco pops,girl 15,only needs more space for clothes,her 12" ft by 5"ft double cabin not big enough,generally has more money than parents due to lucrative baby sitting jobs.

OFFERS the south pacific is calling..........................

Don't we all wish we could control the wind?

atoll i feel your pain we lived aboard with our children for 2.5 years and that sounded so familiar as to be scary if this thread was two years ago my wish list would have been different through fear of munity ! lol my wife and i had a good laugh at your post i suppose one thing i would like to change is the location of our boat -to a tropical paradise instead of here where we are experiencing our coldest winter on record cheers andy

Asssuming it is still the same boat; I would change the auto-pilot to one that works when I DON"T want to steer.
I used a tiller pilot recently. Set the course and leave it to it. Needs to be monitored (ie be on watch) and reasonable sail trin but otherwise leaves time for coffee making, fiddling about etc. Recommended!
