HEY!!!

I'M 5'8"... HOW TALL ARE YOU

Actually, I used to live aboard a Hurley 20' , a Vivacity 21' , a Gulfcoast 21' and a Venture 21'... all with about 4 1/2 ' of headroom.

Thus, my Vega seems like a mansion

not that I wouldn't like to have 40' catamaran

[BTW Curm, any pictures of your boat? I googled but didn't find any photos of a Sam Devlin Custom 28.5] Just curious...

cheers,

mm

Sam Devlin Custom 28.5:

Devlin Designing Boat Builders - Means Of Grace

I became her third owner about a month ago. She's currently on the hard in Maine (Penobscot Bay area). We will launch her next May and sail her down to Rhode Island.

I also own a Galilee 15 day sailer. Not even you would be willing to live on that, although it does have unlimited headroom.

The Albin Vega has a low trunk over the aft end of the V-Berth & Head (< 5' fwd of mast), which is raised to 5'-10" in the Salon & Galley. The maximum Beam is only 8'-0".
