Re: Where are the younger people?

Thats a nice boat. I would only be concerned about the size and subsequent cost of maintenance slash repairs.
are you planning on solo sailing? A boat the big is very hard to maneuver into tight moorings or dockages and the force needed to crank the winches while holding the traveler line and maintaining heading can be tiresome quickly.
A two man crew would probably be needed but its not impossible to go it alone. Very cool what your doing. Refitting is fun but expensive. Learn a lot however and it feels good to say you own your own boat, dinghy or otherwise (veiled refrence).
