Re: Looking for a 40 ft.

Thaks denverdOn, you have a point there, I agree, a machine well used, even an old one, is far better than other misused or careless maintained.

Re: Looking for a 40 ft.

I didn't necessarily mean rein it in,just do your homework and learn all you can.It's a very small boat in a very big ocean.The only thing better than being in a warm breeze in the middle of the night following a phosphorous trail seeing so many shooting stars nobody would believe you,is having somebody with you to share it.Then again,there's seeing dry land after some real weather.I love the North Atlantic.It's better than poking yourself in the eye with a sharp stick.

Chucks, what year is your DS40?
