Walt it would be difficult to find a truer statement.

People buy boats to fulfill a dream, but all too often its's not the boat that is the answer to the dream.

People think "if I only had a XXX boat I could do YYY" When in reality "YYY" isn't going to happen because of other reasons than a particular boat.

People need to look at their boating dreams and remove the non boating barriers, or their cruising dreams will never come true. Perhaps that is getting work out of the way, or getting a spouse onboard with your dreams, or a variety of issues.

YES! we need to be honest with ourselves as to the stage in life we are at, and the barriers to our dreams when picking a boat. Failure to do that will only result in disappointment.

Ah, well...it looks a bit like a Nordy, so if I'm wrong, as I said, it's his own fault for not completing his profile - I did try. That's what profiles are for folks...just sayin'...

A Nordy 60 if I'm not mistaken. I know that's what Twisted has anyway. If I'm wrong about yours, I'm not far wrong, and it's your fault, because you have not completed your profile yet.

PS. Actually, looking at your avatar, you might not have wannabe front windows, so that's make it a 50 maybe..? Still just the ticket though.
Thank you for the extreme compliment and I hope I didn't come off as not being happy with what I have. It's fun to dream, but in reality my boat (not a Nordhavn -- its a 64' Mikelson Nomad) is perfect for me and my needs. The fact is, I probably appreciate my boat more than Mr. Caruso appreciates his. -Rick (I will get on the profile.)

Size is complemented by good interior design. Many mid thirties ft boats have one entire side of the main cabin as galley, removing the "conversation" of some seating one side, and dining + seating the other side. Unlike my IG36, the IG32 is a good example of seating both sides(versions may vary from those I`ve seen).

My problem re boat size is "I like big butts and I cannot lie" as the song goes.
Sometimes you just have to get the boat that speaks to your heart,not saying it's going to be the right boat,but hey life is short you know.

One guy has a faux fireplace where the sliding salon door would normally be. The referenced boat doesn't have a real flybridge (something I considered essential, but haven't used as much as expected), and was one of the first with the tower. Admittedly, my tower isn't the work of art often found on nice sportfishers, but I like mine (in combination with a real flybridge) way more than the one referenced above (which, to me, looks like scaffolding).

Anyway, that boat has been for sale for quite some time, so I suspect it could be had at a substantial discount.
