"Pahi 31 increased by 10%? As an exercise, I find the idea very compelling, but from a practical point of view there are some pitfalls. If we were just stretching her three feet in length, adding an additional bulkhead amidships would probably be all…"

"Tangora MKIV seams to be a good option! It is right between in size of the Tiki 38 and the Pahi 31. But I love the look of the Pahi. Also It seams that over 16 foot beam Marina start to charge for two spot! I understand that Marina becomes expensive…"
