I want a big, cheap
old boat, too--and am wondering what I should be looking for. My wife and I, and her 14-year-old daughter, expect to become liveaboards in Boston in the next six months. The only boats I've seen that seem to afford a berth where my wife and I can sleep touching each other and sufficient privacy for both us and child are center cockpit
models. I did see the listing for that Marine
Trading 41 ketch
that someone mentioned upstream and it seemed just about ideal for our needs (including price--$35K is the very top edge of what we can spend.) Are there other models besides the abundant Morgan
41 Out Island that I should be considering?
