Thanks, started to realize that
. Unfortunately I can't go for a real ocean-going 45'-er, because I work
in the middle of the continent (lots of nice lakes!) and limited to a self-launch trailerable solution.
However, "trailerable" has some more room once I get the BE license
, I am eyeing the First 235 and First Class 8 now. Neither are ocean-crossers but both are definitely more than the First 18.
I know, the swing-keel is also not the best solution, but the FC8 with that 1.8m swing might not be that bad.
