Littlewing77 thank you for the advice
. A 5k cat that I can bash up learning
might not be the worst advice
. The only sailing I've done is a dingie and windsurfing. All my other experience is with a motor
I do have a whole lot to learn.
I've not even seen any of these boats in person. Wife and I are chomping at the bit to get down to Florida
and see them. She likes the Tartan's best also.
I like some other boats, but I keep coming back to the engine
placement on the Tartan. Love how you can reach it form all sides. I HATE working on engines when you can reach the parts
. Don't mind it a bit if I can reach them. That is why I do all the work
on my motorcycles myself but keep new cars with long warranties so I don't have to work
We are most likely going to buy a Tartan.
I really like the layout on that Jeanneau
though. That's the first time I've seen one of those. All the others on the market are out of our price
range and never read anything about them. Like how you can steer inside and outside depending on the weather
. But the engine
looks like it would be really hard to reach.
