Any opinions on Endeavour's for live aboard and for off shore. I am looking at both a 32' & 40'. Also, what one would reasonably expect to pay for either.

Thanks,

Shaving -- Blade or Electric

I know some do not shave while cruising but, those that do, how do you do it? For blade users, how do you maintain your blades and supply?

Thanks, Tom

Which sailing school?

I have both ASA and US Sailing in my area. Is one better than the other?

My plan is to take basic courses locally, then do a live aboard for more advanced classes. Is the smart?

Thanks

Caliber 47LRC SE

Any info regarding the 47LRC SE is appreciated. We are considering it for offshore use by 2 couples. I have read the few magazine reviews and would like to hear from actual owners. Thanks
