Re: Sailboat Identification Help

Jimgo: I will be in Okinawa for another 2.5 to 3.5 years. The boat market here is...awkward. The locals don't list there boats in many places, the Americans do. I've seen Americans sell there boats quickly and I've seen Japanese boats that have been on sale since 2011. I agree with your statements about having a hard time selling the boat and that it would be a good idea to rent boats instead. Here's the problem, the rental boats have a limited navigation area. Okinawa is part of the Ryukyu Island chain that consists of 161 islands, I cannot travel to any of them with a rental boat. I have been renting boats here for the last several months, but I need my own boat to accomplish my goals. Thank you for the advice.

Doug
