It shows a stop at the north end of the show, but I can't tell if that stop would be accessible before the show opens. I'd prefer to already be over at the convention center when the show actually...

Camano 31. Pretty neat looking boats and probably close to what the OP is looking for. Not easily trailerable, but as they say, every boat is a compromise.

I was going to say Endeavor. They're a bit awkward, but very functional with space. If my job allowed me to cruise for a year, I'd do it in a heartbeat. If you're wanting to go all the way up to...

I imagined that a boat like the one Capt Deano bought plus a good generator and seakeeper would be quite a fishing rig, although not very cheap. I'm currently restricted by draft such that I'd never...
