Re: share with me, your words of wisdom

That's all true. key West is the land of shady boat deals. The Columbia 26 I have has a clean title. I'm just tired of looking after it and want to see it go to someone who will fix it up and use it. When I get off this tug boat next week I'll see if I can get some current pictures posted. As for insurance......I've never had it. My newby friend just bought a Cal 36 and got some liability incase he hits someone. Anything else seems like a monthly bill you don't need. The best boat insurance is attention and common sense, certainly cheeper. What you gonna do, spend $300 a month on little boat you bought for a grand? For these retired cruisers who sold the house and spent 100 grand plus on the gadget boat it makes sense, plus they come from the suburbs where everything must be insured. For the young guy on a tough little barebones sloop it seems overkill.
