ecgossett is on a distinguished road
Can you recommend some boats???

So far including Dingy and Outboard I'm looking at about $6000 in costs for basics... I can live with a foot pump versus electric. This also would include solar panel and wind generator...

The sails are in good shape, and the rigging is new. The only real deck issues I spotted where on the hull just on leading edges.....

The thought behind something like this would be something cheap to get fix the basics and get on a mooring ball for $55 a month in the river to live aboard. I also live about an hour from a marine chandlary and have a decent sailing community for support...

On the bad side at least two of my local buddies (Metali'Cat one of them), have boats that they have been working on (mostly in the water) for at least two years. The downside for me is I'm not sure I have 20k to spend on a boat for live aboard right now... I'm short selling my house and in the military.
