Will be 3 of us on board. When responsibilities allow I will make sure to start getting out and traveling to put my hands on some vessels. Looking forward to it.

Re: List of my current boat considerations

The Lafitte 44 has the best galley of any sailboat I have ever seen. It was on my short list until I found out that there is a good chance that the teak decks are fastened by screws from INSIDE the boat. I know Bob Perry has a cult like following but nearly every cruising boat of his that I looked at had a really weird design feature. On some it is a really poor engine access, others had a funky cockpit layout.

I would put a Pacific Seacraft 44 at the top of the list then.
