Greetings! - Although I am absolutely no use to answer yer questions, I will admit that I am also enjoy the Motorboating side of boating
(don't tell anyone!) - nowadays through the use of my fathers 33 foot displacement motor
cruiser, but I am kinda tempted to get a small runaround for island hopping and off to France
for next summer.
When growing up we used to spend up to a couple of months at a time on a 27 foot motorsailor in the summer - up to 5 of us! - where there is a will there is usually a way!!
