Re: A bluewater live-aboard for under $20k
3 weeks how has the Search been going. any new news?
Going to be looking at a Tartan 30, 34, and a C&C Corvette in a couple weeks. I'm in no hurry to make a move (unless the perfect one comes along), as this degree will now take another year with how I'm writing my thesis. :/ But next summer I set cast off for the Caribbean, so help me. In the mean time, sailing my little Puffer as much as possible.
Two Tartan 30s were for sale/sail in NYC last summer for around 5K - one of them in better shape than the other but neither in bad shape. Both felt "huge" to me on the inside - made the little int'l folkboat i ended up choosing instead feel reassuringly simple.
Yeah I really like the simplicity of the Corvette. There was one in solid condition just down the road, the dealer had crazy deals to clear his lot for a repaving. Unfortunately she was gone before I could even visit.
