I hate to say it, but New England
has even fewer places to keep a cat than the lower lattitudes. But if you are already accustomed to a mooring
, go for it. Chance a charter in a boat in your price
range. Its been pointed out to me that a galley
up arrangement doesn't work on cats under 42-44 feet, in that size range you will have more than twice as much counter space and room for microwave and front loading regrigerator in a galley down setup. The cook can still be part of the party, but is less likely to be cornered by 'sidewalk superintendants'. The bridgedeck in my PDQ
is just salon
, all other activities (cooking, navigating, communicating and crisis management) can carry on even with 7 or eight guests seated inside. Or five kids
sleeping through a sail change.
