Snow bird sailboats. I have never thought about that. That is a good point and one I will explore. I bought this boat as a project and understood the first obstical would be the move. I am also attracted to the idea of having my own transport system in case I find a boat I want to canibalize equipment from in the future as well as moving my finished project her last 100 miles of terra firma to splash and start new adventures.
I do appreciate all comments on this thread. Excessive advice will do no harm. Thanks to all.
