Sailed for many years,crossed over to a meridian 341 last year.iam planning to change to a 50 to a 53 foot motor boat. My wife and i plan to run the boat ourselves. We also have a german shepard. Call it the Admiral.Loves boating!! I am looking at a searay 47 Sedan bridge and at a carver 52 voyager. Iwill be on lake ontario,going to New York and eventionaly to the east coast.Probably up to the Madeleine Islands,back to Gaspé and up the St Lawrence .I have read about all of the comments made on the Carver and it seems Force 4 winds are it´s general limit,force 5 being the maximum for confort.Nothing much has been said on the sea ray sedan. I have studied carefully the boat tests for both boats.Sea Ray seems to come out with a better mpg rate. 30to30. Carver seems to consume 25 percent more.How can you rate the Sea ray for winds and for general confort? I would really appreciate all of your opinions.This is a big investment on my part and if any captains have any information to share ,i will read it with great interest.
