Well, checked out the 60' Southern Ocean Shipyard Schooner, it looked quite nice, newer electronics
, though it is coming on 40 years old. The biggest downside to me was that it has a 8'6" draft
, which is somewhat limiting in a number of locations I've been reading about/watch vids of. The Amel is 6'7", so it is almost 2' deeper. Not a huge disparity between them, but could make all the difference in the world in certain situations.
