Re: "Right" boat for the ICW and NC gunkholing?
Thanks for your thoughtful reply. I think you crusing fund idea is, unfortunately, too large.
Our lovely Cheoy Lee Offshore 28 could do the ICW trip, but, without providing the space for additional visiting friends. Unless we enclose the cockpit for additional sleeping space.
Anyway, we would have to sell her to get a larger ICW boat. She will not sell for 30k, even in her pretty state so....
The fact of many cruisers; spend more money on a boat and have more boat and limited time to cruise; or, spend less money on a boat and have less boat and more time to cruise.
