Thanks for all of your comments. We've been re-thinking the Gozzard. It is a lot of money! We love the open layout -- but for that amount of money we could buy a bigger boat! We've decided to pay less $$$ for the boat and have more $$$ for the cruising kitty. Now we are looking at Tayanas (42 Vancouver) or Gulfstars. I like the look of the Gulfstar
47 sailmaster, but it looks like a big boat for two people to handle. We also like the Moody 37. Looking for a cruiser big enough to be comfortable (preferably aft cabin) but not too big (to keep down expenses and for easier handling).
We are not ready to go out and buy a boat yet -- just trying to narrow down the list of boat models/types to look at when the time comes.
