    The only thing I need instruction on is ‘Storm Tactics’

    Never needed a book … only a Skimmer / Target would have a requirement for such a thing LOL!

    So! …. to start things off I would suggest a Trident 24, as there are a few in reasonable condition, in commission, seaworthy and fantastic value for money (3 – 5k).

    Also I would like to propose the Newbridge Voyager (as they are a regular successful contender in the Azores Challenge).

    Although I do have to admit watching a couple of storms pass last winter and a neighbour of mine (a Centaur) hardly moved while the rest of us were heeling something between 25 – 45 degrees…… ‘brick-out-house’ just has to be part of their description.
    Here's a French selection of 25 footers. My first thought was a Sangria because they sold over 2500.

    Smaller alternatives - in keeping with the slug philosophy might be the Corribee, a Hurley 22 or even a Folkboat.

    Default thanks chaps

    very good of you to help me out

    couple of criteria

    separate heads

    either a new modern inboard engine or an outboard in a well

    a great Centaur would be wonderful

    but it is definatly at the top of my price list

    I would be frighetened about the costs it would incur even when I am not sailing it

    the pageants seem very expensive for a stripped down centaur

    but one of those would be great too

    Just a PS to my previous post :

    I think that this is a pretty old article and the prices should be less today. I was recently speaking with some professionals and they say that "there is no such thing today as a market price. No offer is ridiculous."

    Centaurs and Paegents, Ive surveyed loads and I am very impressed with them, very strong, very stable so ideal for filming from. Snapdragon 25 comes third on my list, good headroom and separate heads, oh and the Paegent has the largest heads Ive seen for a long time. Usable space wise, the Pageant wins hands down, Centaurs do carry a price premium but it is a bit of a buyers market at the moment.

    This might get you round the northern bit if you're up for a semi project

    It has the road trailer which you seek so has three pluses but doesn't have bilge keels

    -inboard
    -size for the northern bits
    -trailer for taking it home

    can't see you getting a package like this with bilge keels and a trailer. That mixture doesn't seem to exist especially if you want an inboard

    If you want inboard, stability, size and bilge keels I can't see better value than the centaur you desire anyway.

    Default Dockrell 22

    I've mentioned this one before on your other posts Dylan, looks like it ticks all your boxes ( and some extra ones such as having a trailer!!)
    Currently £2500 with no bids and 3 days to go, looks like it is in good condition.
    May even be fairly local to you as well??

    I am biased towards a Trident 24 although marginal for towing cracking boats in many ways...

    But have to say to me that ticks allot of box's for Dylan...

    And just like the slug it purpose comes before looks...
