I think most of our long cruises and overnights will be just us two as 3 of our 4 kids are now adult aged and headed to college this fall. But my situation is similar to yours, the enclosed head was sorta the make or break lol.
Most of our trips I assume will be the Admiral, myself, and our German Shepard, but she and I both love the cockpit on this boat for those warm summer days entertaining a couple friends as well.
What i do love about this particular boat is the previous owner has made multiple trips from the Puget Sound to Alaska on it, and built it around that.
I'm excited to get back on a boat, sold my C-Dory back in 2015 and life is finally settled in enough to get on the water again!
