    I should have started with this question first.
    What are my options at 25'/28' in steel? I need a boat that is economic
    to operate safe for 3/4 day trips off the coast and islands of California.
    It would be me and the Wife and occasionally a grand child.
    A small diesel inboard is preferred and steel will be easiest for me to build in as I am a machinist with heavy repair/fabrication exp. I am fond of the old school/fishing boat looks, what is out there that fits in this box?
    Thanks for reading this
    Steve.
