The NT's are nice boats. They were on our short list when we found our DeFever.

For over a decade we cruised a Willard 40 wide body sedan along the Inside Passage and Alaska, often single handing...no side decks and never missed them. It's what you get accustomed to.

Wifey B. Thanks. The NT 32 decision was the result of 2 years of searching for the boat that worked best for ME. Initially I thought Marks comment was simply a strongly held opinion which he is entitled to. The “boat handling” comeback proved me wrong.

"I am looking forward to finding the right RPM/KPH/GPH for me."

About the square root of the LWL (in feet) will give the speed to start in K.

Rob,
I remember the boat. Look forward to seeing you at Shenny this summer. I will be on either C or E dock. It’s still up in the air.

Adagio, noting the musical screen name,you might not want to know a friend who sang in a Brigadoon production called it "Brink of Doom".
Just Aussie humor. I wish you and Brigadoon happy and successful cruising times, she looks a great boat.

I played Pirates of Penzance years ago, renamed Pilots of Pan Am. Not just Aussie humor!
