They also have a pretty 40 Eagle Transpac there. She looks like a friendly coastal boat for me and wife. I will post pics tomorrow. Thanks for the advice.
I'd be curious to know what you thing of that KK42 in Sidney when you look at her.

As far as the Eagle Transpac, if you are talking about the Ch'aak that also looks like a very nice boat. My wife wants a second cabin for the kids, or I would have considered it more closely but it seems like a nicely updated boat at a reasonable price. They have added a canvas cover to the aft cockpit because of our typical weather. Personally, I think I would prefer a design in which the boat deck had a long enough overhang to make that unnecessary. One of the reasons why I like the American Tug designs so much.
