This is so true, when we found our boat we were actually going to look at a PDQ, and had to walk across our boat to get to the other. The admiral and I stopped and said "wow this is a nice boat", it just had that feel to us!!

I live work and sail on the west coast, when searching for a cat I discoved that the west coast market is bleak, so I looked at many differant cats in Florida and the Caribbean either in person or by having brokers and or freinds check them out - ended up after about 13 months with a boat I could live with i.e. afford. Best with your search - make it an adventure.

It took me 6 months to find and buy ours. But, we knew exactly the boat we wanted. It took 6 months prior to that to decide on which boat we wanted.
