cheaper vs less problematic
Sorry guys...here''s a little more info....
I am in NC and I''ll be sailing in the sounds and rivers mostly, but I''m beginning so I need a little fogiveness in the boat. Also, both have inboard diesels (one of my requirements).
The Tanzer needs new sails sooner than later but for what I''m doing both boats have sails that will "work." Also, the Cal has a marine head, the Tanzer a porti-potty. The Cal has a nice Autopilot and shore power. The Tanzer has neither.
I''m starting to become convinced that I will need to trade boats in a couple of years and that there isn''t an inexpensive one that will last me for a long while. With that in mind, I think the Tanzer (after repairs) will be the easiest to get my investment out of because the orginal price is so good.
I don''t know if there are definitive answers to my questions, but I appreciate the insights you''re offering. I just want a little assurance from people a little more "in the know" before I dive in.
