My feelings exactly! I don't know much about the CP59...no one does! My limited experience with Fleming boats has made me a huge fan, however, & I came very close to pulling the trigger on a 55 some years ago. In the final analysis, the crawl around ER backed me off. For that kind of money I want an ER I can "stroll" into. Also, from the videos of the CP that I've seen, Fleming's elegant interiors win hands down win with my wife. I had a similar take on the galley as Don pointed out. Both boats have comparable speeds but my vote at this juncture goes to Fleming. (And getting several pairs of knee pads for the ER.)
