Thanks to many for your helpful ideas.
FWIW I've probably done more distance sailing on larger cats-or any cats-than anyone posting
I purposely left that point out,to see who would make assumptions, and who would take us at face value.
We want and need a large vessel,and can pay for it.We choose to keep it under a certain price
, by choice. Simple.
Lepke: Power boat
,but like I said before we want a multi for the shallow draft
and beaching. Cool vessel you have,we're in BC...don't recall
ever seeing you. And I'm not in the mood to ship nor cruise
Event: likely not a ton,and not ahead of the mast
Ranchero: not that expensive,and not that old. Agree nothing factory BUT I have seen a 60' or so with a PWC
SV Neko: looked at Tennant, don't want to wait years and spend large-only to have it instantly worth half what we spent on it.
Gord May: Thank you
Sailmonkey: Thanks for the link,recall I can do with one PWC
and the boards are bulky but light.
Cotton: thanks for concern, but review my point at the start.
jdazey: I think I've seen them. I've also met a couple in their 60's with a 60' cat. On rare long trips they'd get help for watches etc. We really like the 63' Shuttleworths,they have a large rear platform.
thinwater: "Not a sailor I'm guessing." ....refer to my second paragraph above.
"I'll leave it at that, since this is a case where if you have to ask the question, you can't." Let's see...hmm..an assumptive false cause fallacy used as an ad hominem attack. Again,refer to my second paragraph above.
is littered with many good boats/cars/trucks etc that got the job done,but were not great looking....and didn't sell.
zeehag: ???? But at least you admit it may exist,thank you for your time.
Bulawayo: Thank you. Like I said and you noticed,one PWC would do. Like I stated previously,we frequently have guests and not all married so I'm sure my old school
friends won't want to bunk up with my wife's 60 year old mom...nor vice versa
The scooters are optional...and never had any problems with corrosion storing them in the garage,or in the spare cabin
on the 50'.
"The gates of wrath are about to come crashing down. If you reduce the PWC to a single
unit the rest is all totally doable. Goodness knows where people get their info from."
I'm not sure.
But what I do know is I've done very well in life by not listening to people who say something can't,shouldn't,or will never be done.
Uponstands: thank you,we have seen the Catana
JerseyJoe: scoots wouldn't be on deck
,and not mandatory anyways.
Our present powerboat is over 70',but again-want shallow draft
and beaching potential. I don't see how you think it'll take a long time to lash down some kayaks and such.
Sea Dream: Our friends and family-we enjoy having them around,and the same in return.
Yet I won't tell you to get a bigger boat and get more friends....
alansmith: your concerns explained above
We have several in mind,will keep looking and enquiring.
