Space!

For cruising and fishing! With our two kids and still room to host another family, as well as fish all the way around the boat - perfect.

Size.

Ah, that was a good day. Beautiful sunny fall day in New England, October. After our good old Carver 32, the Mainship felt huge. Big, clean, smelled nice, all stairs and no ladders, a mile of headroom, and lots of power like the Queen Mary. That feeling of being master of the universe when I gently ease that giant fiberglass tennis shoe out of the slip. Yes, that was a good day.

In one word, what made you choose your boat.......

Yes! That's it Ted! I was going to say "Everything" but "Yes" would be the first word. Every other boat was "this could work", or "this will do."

So it would be:

"Yes! She's "Everything" we wanted but more than we needed."

After that it would be what everyone else has said above and below.

For our old hatteras 56MY:
Ergonomics and seaworthiness.

For the Whaler: Fun

Rugged quality, functionality, and creature comforts - best I could find in a trailerable boat.

Agree with most of the others but I have to say mine is the "Admiral"

Liked one of the MS 34HT's we looked at except for condition - she said "go find a nicer one..."
Done and we both are lovin' it.

Men buy boats that make them feel manly.

Women buy boats that are comfortable.

A variation on that theme is "trawler tugs" which walk a tightrope line where men find them hairy chested and women find them cute

Fun, adventure, comfort, quality, and the Admiral LOVED it! So far, so good in the Sea of Cortez. It was a big change from our sailboat, but a good one!

Cheers, Bill
