XRAYCHARLIE.. I have a 34' 2005 MS flybridge trawler - ergo, some experience... I looked for about a year for the best boat for me - saw Camano's and other brands at Trawler Fests... Camano among other things, was just too small for the price. I'd think twice before going off shore in a Camano. Suggest you check with Steve Cyr at Stella Blue - just google Stella Blue and check with JD at Stella di Mere... they're MS owners and have tons of experience.
