Re: New Boat

Welcome that would be a great boat but budget and intended use are the big factors.

Hi Raysail.... Welcome... sounds like a feasable plan.. Bendi's are pretty good boats and usually well set up for shorthanded cruising... and at that size great 4 8

Good boat.

You can get by with two but... 4 is more better.
