I was just looking at the Gozzard 36's, 37's, and 41's online and liked the interior
, with convertible main salon
forward - which can be open or closed and functions as a sleeping cabin
as well - either with two wide single
berths or a hinged-together double bed
. This is something I haven't seen on other boats. It would be particularly nice on the 36's and 37's as I would imagine it would live like a larger boat. I also liked the boats' cockpits which were spacious for their size.
In terms of their bluewater capabilities, I know that one critisism is the lack of a seaberth in the middle of the boat. Also, the large cockpit
has been cited as a negative, although at anchor
I sure would appreciate that feature. The cockpit's the equivalent of a porch and patio and backyard, isn't it? Does it have to be dinky to be safe?
I wouldn't want to sacrifice safety
at sea for comfort at anchor
, but I would be willing to sacrifice some comfort at sea for comfort at anchor, since I plan to do a lot more of the latter.
I'd sure appreciate hearing your thoughts on the above issues as well as any other input on these boats. I'm always impressed by the amazing amount of knowledge on this board!
Thanks, and sorry for sounding so much like a typical first mate,
