Welcome aboard TF
I think you will find the folks here are generally very welcoming and helpful... although at times a little cantankerous!
We have a '08 MS 34HT - the hardtop version of the late model 34T - and it suits our needs and cruising style very well. We especially like the light & fresh air available in the saloon, layout of the galley being open to the living space while still hiding any mess from guests, separate shower, cover aft deck, wide / safe side decks / rails.
Great boat for a couple even for extended cruises.
More info, projects and pics available on the Bacchus link below.
If that's what you are interested in I'd be happy to answer any specific questions
