Re: Boat Candidate options wanted
Take a look at a Nor'sea 27, aft cabin model. Under 40 foot, most sell for under 60K around 10 years old, several have circumnavigated, draft way under 5 foot, the only requirement not fulfilled is the wheel. She has an outboard rudder with tiller. Enclosed head, full galley, manageable ground tackle system, 40 gallon water, 20 gallon fuel, most equipped with 2 cylinder Yanmars fresh water cooled, trailer-able so you can be on the west coast in 6 days, or the Sea of Cortez, or the Pacific Northwest. If you have space at home, she can be stored there during the off season. No longer held hostage by the boat yards.
No such thing as a free cat, and that goes for boats as well.
