Re: Looking for a liveaboard in SF Bay Area
There has to be a catch...
In the Bay area ... there are deals to be had ... sure you are not going to get a perfect boat WITH running inboard ... in fact most of those available ARE available because the inboard has given up the ghost ... and the cost to repair/replace that inboard is more than the boat is worth ... and yes that means alot of work to make it sailable and safe ... simply a matter of priorities ... and cashflow ...
and I know well ... I picked up a good sailing Ranger 23 (dead 6 HP outboard) ... with more than 4 good sails ... yes she needed alot of TLC and cleaning inside ... but still a very decent boat ... for $1
yes ... right place at the right time ... but still hard to beat ...
