Re: Newbe with no experience buys big boat

Thanks ShoalFinder! I probably would have kept going south and looked for crew in Acapulco and Puerto Vallarta but that boat had a fatal flaw that was impractical (albeit possible) to fix: the hull-deck joint. At sea everything below would get soaked in any kind of heavy weather. That alone made the vessel suitable only for dry coastal cruising.

Thank you for your support on the book! I am writing another in 2013, this one a novel.

Best regards,
