No, not my first time at the rodeo. I have a 24' RL (yachts), it's an Australian design built here. It floats in about 2 ft or less of water. Swing keel comes right up the middle of the cabin.
I do understand that I don't buy by the toys, but I'm fuming about having to buy them after. Not much $ left for accessories. Yes, I would prefer it to be solid. I just want it all, on one boat preferably.
Assuming it's the Contest 33, I'm leaving out the GPS/Plotter, I think he's throwing in his old GPS. I have ordered a Gamin Bluetooth GPS for the laptop, it was a real cheap price.
I do want a radar though for safety, what else.
I've played with some really expensive ships radars in my time, always at the dock
and I want to see what to avoid, and set an alarm zone. A Krupp/Atlas would be nice, but would move the waterline.
