So the choice is yours... lament there are no 'proper' boats made anymore or buy whats available and come and join us cruising.
Mark is right. We have seen all sorts of boats out cruising, obviously. No doubt though, the largest numbers have been Bene's, Hunters, and Catalinas. Yes, owners do actually cruise these production boats, believe it or not....

Much of the year the weather is very nice. You can drive hundreds of miles and see very little development;

What kind of sailing do they have around DFW? I'm familiar with Eagle Mountain, Possum Kingdom, Lake Worth, and Benbrook. Mostly water skiing and bass fishermen as I recall.
