Re: j24 seaworthiness

well, sight unseen, I don't know just how bad or good it is. if it's seriously bad, I wouldn't take it.

but it may be a moot point. I called the first marina. obviously, I have different ideas of reasonable than multi-hull guy.

350 for the winter, on the water. not terrible.
650 to haul it, block it up, clean it, and launch in the spring. I wouldn't have to deal with cleaning it, then, at least not the outside. and I would be able to care for the entire hull. no water in the winter but full electric access.
2000 for a year. maybe I am cheap...or just a poor sailor....but that's a good bit.

worst part is, it's all payable up front. even 350, up front, is out of my price range. i'd have had to save up for that and this was unexpected.

it's just too bad i'm not friends with anyone that lives on the water, there.

I will keep checking around back river, though. I can sail it to where it needs to go, but I can't pull money from trees.

I may just have to give it up, regardless of it's condition.
