Re: What Boat And Why

We chose a Pacific Seacraft (Crealock) 34. When we went looking at boats we had an open mind. We just wanted something that could make the Coconut Milk Run for under US$80k. We lived in Minnesota where our choices were limited.

We went to Duluth to look at a Murray 33 steel cutter and a Tartan 37 and went home with a Pacific Seacraft 34. The difference in quality was too obvious for us to ignore. We paid $82.5k, spent another $10k on overdue maintenance, and sailed it around the west end of Lake Superior.

This spring we packed all our belongings and set sail for Australia. Happy as clams!!!!
