31 - but thats a bit more expensive.
You do mean cruising up the NSW coast?
It can get a bit nasty out there. Southerly Busters, East Coast
Lows, river bars that can smack a decent breaking wave up your butt (the boats butt too
The Hood 23 doesnt have standing headroom
in the galley/saloon so you need to have the main hatch
open. Not much fun when its cold or raining.
For Sydney harbour, Pittwater and maybe up the the mid coast lakes you could look at an Endevour 26, 28 or 30. Compass
28 or 30 as Chris mentioned.
