    We do a lot of exploring on Chesapeake Bay, and to us the cabin is one of the best parts of our 38' Formula. We went so far as to add hot water, A/C and generator so we're completely self-sufficient if we have to be. It's all in the way you use your boat.

    We use our cabin every weekend. You don't need to have a cooking area. That what restuarants are for. Just make sure where you stay has shower facilities.
    I'm 6 feet tall and have a 38 Flat deck Cigarette 7 foot plus V berth. Works just fine.

    If you like it rough do it OFFSHORE!!!

    33 Donzi

    I have been wanting that 33 Donzi for a long time!!! - I love the cabin - and it's still fast and very creature comfort in cockpit ( power dropouts - power footrests) If I had the $$$ i'd be in one right now.
    Myself - I prefer to stay on my boat - especially at Put-In-Bay. I Like to keep an eye on who's walking across my swim platform/sunpad. Also if someone decides to cast out of the raft "I"!!!! want to re-tie my boat - you can wind up next to some drunken Jag-off that won't adjust your fenders or anything.

    I've also had to raft in the harbor, - storm kicked up the next morning-early - sailboat broke loose and was blowing right toward me - I was glad to be there to fend off the blow boat from mine.

    I'm with "Mr. Cig" as wifey. We do use the cabin, it really is nice and comfortable after a long day out. Hook up shore power, crank up the stereo, and click on the air! All set! I agree, though, wouldn't use the micro or cooking.....have cell phone and am very good at dinner reservations! It also makes anchoring at the beach more fun....but that is a TOTALLY different story

    Use mine only if I drink too much and quickies. Mostly just for lines and lifejackets.

    Depends on how you boat. We use ours a lot. We stay at a local marina 10 minutes from our house and sleep on the boat. I'll admit I'd rather stay at home in the king size bed with a/c, but it's nice staying on the boat, too. I wouldn't want to pay for a hotel in that case. We travel a lot on Lake MI, and it's nice to stay on the boat. Saves us cashola that way. So we can spend more money on boat gas and more trips

    That's the ONLY reason we'll move to another boat, more cabin room. I'll go after more speed too when we do, just cause But I could get more speed out of the current boat, can't add on cabin room, well, unless Mr Offshore puts that pop-up on cabin option my boat

    Quickies??? That must be where you got your nickname "hair trigger" .
    Slept on my 27 Formula a few times but with shore power and cable TV. Flip the air's
    You can never have too much horsepower or money...It's just hard to have both.
