Homebody vs Man about town

I don't see anyone asking about how much time he plans to spend 'at home'.

I thought a trawler was a boat with a full displacement hull built to move economically at abut 70% of the theoretical hull speed. The hull...

Can you explain peninsula vs walk around?
I need length but okay if corners rounded off.

Sounds like a lot of folks use better quality 'memory' foam if mattress needs replacing?

16 Years, 500 hr and new motor

What you think of a 16 year old boat advertised as only 500 hours on the hull and half of that with a new Cummins 6BT5.9M2? How did they manage to need a new engine at 250 hours?

Is there an advantage of putting larger bed forward instead of aft? The few Aft cabins with centerline beds seemed the best fit for us. Again seems rare on 36' to 42' boats.
