Re: Midlife crisis Here I come!

Thanks for all the replies. I am currently in the market for a F350 to tow her next year. In wisconsin I can get a wide load permit for $60 for the year, Also for the trip I will trailer her to Bayfield Wi and have a boatyard step the mast. My boat has a keel stepped mast and I heard/read that they are a handfull to step. Also on the Paceship fourm I have come accrost a few other paceship owners in that area and I am sure they will be arround to give me advice. My boat has a centerboard swing keel and she pulls very nice on the heavy duty trailer. While I could trailer launch her (she draws under 3ft with the centerboard up) as long as I am going to use the boatyard to step the mast I might as well launch her there also. Like I said befor I am getting real tired of driveway sailing and cann't wait to get her in the water. I will be a liveaboard all summer till layup time. See you out there, Richard
