JT - You have a great model MT. Easy as pie to pilot and dock. I have the 50 Widebody, and I don't think you'd have any trouble piloting her, but docking is the problem. With a crew of one, you can do it relatively easily, but alone is tough only because you are too high from the dock to get to the lines. No wind or current, no problem because it does not move around much, but in an opposing wind, it is a handful. You are spot on about maintenance issues though. Compared to your 40, the list is very long. After having a vessel since 1987, you must know every nook and cranny of her, and every system as well as you know your own body. One of the main reasons I am such a Marine Trader fan is their simplicity. Here's to another happy 20 years aboard for you!
*Carl, been missing you.* Have you decided where you are going to wind up your southern trip this fall?
