I had a lot of fun reading thru the FPB related posts on this forum. I just got back from checking out some of those boats in North Carolina ... and am trying to compare the various options for this LDL style boat. Things like the Ned70, the new Circa 24m, the Kooldjack 75 (not sure ever built). Anyone have any thoughts on the options out there right now. I am very much keen on the efficient, fast, safe, capable, low-maint outside, still classy interior ... type of boat. Also, any thoughts on yards in either LA or TX or perhaps as far as FL ... that can build one of these designs?
