Greetings! new to the forum. I live on the southern shore of Ontario- Near where the mighty Niagara River powers into the Lake. Unfortunately not much in the way of downeast style boats here. Fell in love with the look and capability of those hulls over the past 30 years vacationing on the coast of Maine (Bass and S’West Harbor areas)I aim to fix that shortly with a new boat - most vessels here are the garden variety cruiser v hull boats with (dreaded) I/O. Have owned Searays in the past (not a great experience thus the absolute hatred of the IO...) Now sailing on a McGregor 222 that my son rebuilt from a scrapped hull- Been reading through a lot of excellent posts on this site- wow is there a ton of knowledge in this community!! Looking for some direction on a new (new to me..) vessel. Needs are that must be trailerable so max 25 foot. Prefer ob but inboard in the right boat would be fine. Will be using for cruising with wife and day trips for up to four. Plan is to also use if for living aboard for up to three weeks ( not on the the hook). We are backpackers and don’t mind small efficient spaces - plan is to keep it in marina on Ontario with some trips East to coastal Maine in the summer. Thoughts appreciated!!
