Re: C&c 36
So how do you plan to use the next boat?
Daysailing & local cruising. The reason we sold the big Columbia is that we came to realize we don't want to do any long term cruising. We thought we'd spend a month or more onboard at a time in the summer and so forth but we now know we don't want to - a week in Desolation Sound, 3 or 4 days in the Gulf Islands and so forth and we want to get off for a while.
Taking some friends out for the day or overnight, spur of the moment for a few hours when the sailing looks good - that sort of thing.
11 tons of boat was simply too much work & expense for that. 6 tons should be just about right - enough comfort and performance but easily handled without scrounging up crew every time.
Anyhoo - the C&C just showed up at a reduced (again) price - looks like they haven't had any offers for the fairly long time it's been on the market so it may be time for some bottom feeding.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
