The more I research the issue the more I am leaning to the AT 34. I have also concluded that trailering is not worth the added complications based on what we want to accomplish, which is first and foremost escaping the Canadian winters. Hanging out in FL and the Bahamas each winter, and then hauling the boat for the summer, leaving it there, and coming home for the summer seems like the best plan at this point. OTOH if we really fall in love with the liveaboard lifestyle, we can do the Loop if we want. Having options is the key, and I am thinking the AT 34 would do nicely. The admiral and I are also big fans of the PDQ 34, but I am starting to think maintaining a single engine makes better sense.
