John, we are still researching. 32ft is not a magic number but 32 to 38 ft probably is, which is why I had to cross the Talaria off the list. Well that and I was 2 million short!

Dimmer2,
As a member of our "site team" I'd think you'd the courtesy to include "for sale" in the thread title. That way members would know that they are clicking on an add and not a general post. Shame on you.

Eric, as a moderator, I try to keep everyone happy and have edited the title to include "for sale" as you requested.

As a reader, perhaps you might wonder why it is posted in the classified section?

Good luck with the sale dimer2. Knocked a few down on that boat and it is well represented-shouldn't have to much trouble selling it. The boat can pull a tow really well��

Dimmer2,
Thank you very much.
I usually pick what threads to surf on the "trawler discussions" list on our home page. I assume this list is used by most. Just posting the name or description of a boat implies strongly that there is discussion to be had there. With "for sale" included more will click on it that are shopping and those not shoping don't get sucked into wasting their time.
Wish I was shopping for a 32 foot boat. I'd jump right on a NT32.
Thanks again and good luck on your transition.

Well that makes sense. That will give you an excuse to come to Fort Pierce next February. Another boat to shop for at Marine Liquidators.
