We found the right boat. A well-maintained 1994 Hunter 30T. A bit more coinage than anticipated but below the market value. There aren't that many nice boats on the market (at a reasonable, non-mortgage-threatening price).

We moved the boat this weekend to her new home port. 9 hours and 34 kts later we motored into Broad Creek. The move would have taken us less time but we turned around once until the gusty winds stabilized. Not the best of experiences but bruises and sore muscles mend. The Chesapeake develops this chop. A very disconcerting chop with closely knit swells of 3-4 feet.

Two of our children went with me along with the prior owner. I'm glad my spouse wasn't exposed to those conditions on our first daysail!
