TAREUA is on a distinguished road
I Used To Liveaboard In Seattle Next To A Us 29. The Owner Assured Me He Wouldn't Have Bought It Then, If He New How Lightly It Was Put Together. A Boat That I Had Then Was A Cascade 29. They Are Available For Great Prices, But Vary Wildly Due To Most Being Owner Finished. The Difference For A Person Who Wants To Go Cruising, Is You Don't Have To Upgrade Later. Living Aboard Mine As A Young Man Allowed Me To Save Money For Equipment And Cruising Kitty. When I Married, My Wife And I Sailed 22,000 Blue Water Miles On Her Before Selling In Cyprus. A Solid Boat With Some Problems May Only Take A Lot Of Elbow Grease, But A Hull That Didn't Have An Extra Staple In Its Construction Really Can't Be Upgraded. Good Luck, And Don't Pick A Surveyor Recommended By Anyone Involved In The Sail. I've Done That Even When I Knew Better. Look At A Cascade 29 Or Two, And Great Luck To You As A Boat Owner!
