Advice Wanted: 30'''' + for Retiree...
....on a budget. The "shellman" thread was interesting (Advice Wanted: 32''-36''), but I don''t have $100 grand to throw at a boat, my limit being more like $25-35K. As a retiree, I will have plenty of maintenance time to donate, and there will be just me and mamma, eyeball to eyeball, with occasional grandkids visiting. The boat will be just for day sails on Lake Erie with an occasional sleep over. I like the Cape Dory''s looks, but I don''t want a dog. I want some spunk if I can get it and I want something that will be resellable when I''m too brittle to play with it. Any advice?
