It only took me 8 years to really understand that quote. I have no plans whatsoever, now or any time in the furure, to make extended cruises like you describe. I just feel that the 47 Euro is about as nice a boat as a guy could want.

Good luck with the new build & future voyages.

I know what you mean. I'm 5 years into it and I'm sure still evolving.

Our compromise was to keep a boat in FL and get a IO trailer boat for a few weeks in the fantastic CN lakes. Towed behind a bus conversion it is no hassle.

Many scenic places can not be reached from the sea , so a bonus is how many big lakes can be visited.
