Re: "Free boat" seaworthiness

denise030 asks a really good question. what have I been looking to get out of this boat ( to paraphrase a bit )? well, I would ideally like something a bit more seaworthy and stable than a day sailor. something I could, at least, do an overnight or weekend in. I would like to start cruising the bay, proper, and I think something more than a day sailor would be best. I don't need big, though. like I had mentioned, earlier, a Nordica/halman 20 or a flicka would be ideal. but, something around that range would be what I am seeking. that 27 footer is beautiful and early free, as she says, but, realistically, i'd not only have to find a place to keep that boat but I'd also have to transport it down here. that's really more boat than I can handle, at this point in life. I think 25' would be maximum. a little less would be a bit better. this boat looked as if it might have been an opportunity for that. but....maybe not. lol
