Albin vega and various thoughts.

So my dream continues to be a dream. It comes and goes but always comes back.

So why do Albin vega (27) seem to be so much cheaper that other bots of similar age and length? and are these good boats? I've never seen anything on any boat (except hunter and bayliners) that sain ANY boat was bad.

Various thoughts:

What is meant buy initially tender"

What is the demographics of a sailboat owner vs. a power boat owner. For instance I myself have no really considered a power boat. I seem to be drawn to sailing although I've little experience to sailboats OR powerboats? I've no understanding of this.

Which is safer in a storm in the ocean (say fifty miles out) far enough out that you cannot run for port. Say some thunderstorm pop up while you are out there. a sailboat or a powerboat? say both are 27 feet long.

What do you do if when in a sail boat if your port is in the wind and you motor conks out?

What if your motor conks out in a power boat (of course the wind does not matter)

I beg you indulgence on this post.
