    I'll find out- pretty sure it is a 2870, but not sure if it is a CC or a cuddy/express style.

    Yeah, no shit. Most of these boats are just pipe dreams. I pull up at the beach next to $500,000- $800,000 boats that do the same thing as mine. Just a matter of priority and perspective I guess....

    I have trouble sleeping at night when the boat is floating. Just seen too many go down due to faulty sumps. Plus I hate bottom paint. That said, free mooring would get me over it quickly. That's what...

    Yeah, that is what I would expect a mtn in the Alps to look like, visible rock with chutes, not snow spines like that 1st picture. I am pretty sure that photo was not taken in the Alps.
