We want some photos of you under sail, okay? Congrats on the purchase.
The cockpit is actually the most comfortable one I've ever been in - it was one of the principal drivers behind wanting one. It's bigger than it looks, easily seating 5 or 6 people. As to water below - I'm not going offshore so....

Re: Sloop's "New" Cutter

So YOU were the guy spamming Craigslist, Kijiji with the Fortune 30 wanted ads over and over and over and over?

A few of us spent a lot of time theorizing about who was behind that relentless campaign.
Too funny that it turned out to be a Sailnetter.

One popular theory was that it was someone with an obsession with one specific Fortune 30 that the owner wouldn't sell to them.

Another was that it was the owner of the cheaply listed Fortune 30 ad that was endlessly reposted around the same time, trying to increase the attention of his boat for people looking to buy, when he wasn't adding interesting and strange commentary to his ad.

EDIT: By few of us, I mean on Granville island, not on Sailnet

Renewing ads every week or two is spamming?

Anyway - it sure worked.

Re: Sloop's "New" Cutter

Congratulations Jon! Great looking boat. I think the internal layout looks terrific for a 30 footer- nice and roomy and practical. I wish you all the best with your new "toy"!!

Re: Sloop's "New" Cutter

SloopJB,

A very heart-felt congratulations. I know what its like to research multiple models for years, pick one or two out that best fit your needs and then sort through available examples until you find the one with the right intersection of condition, equipage and price.

And now for the request for a favor....We often get new sailors or first time potential boat owners on this site who are looking for a boat and really do not seem to have a clear image of how to set criteria, how to locate the right boat, and what is involved in the purchase process.

From your comments over the years it would appear that you clearly set your goals, arrived at your own personal set of criteria to meet them, narrowed your choices in accord with those goals, picked a specific model, looked for a 'perfect example' of that model and then went through the purchase process.

If you are willing to spend a little time writing this up, I think that it might prove helpful to the knowledge pool if you perhaps explained how you went about deriving that criteria, picking a specific model and example, then the search and purchase process. While I believe that there is no single right way to do these things, none the less, I suggest that your process would provide one possible template for a newbie to observe how thic process can be done.

Thank you and good luck with the new (to you) boat,

Jeff

Re: Sloop's "New" Cutter

Jeff, I think you give me far too much credit for a rational & focused search. I'm sure Faster blew his morning coffee out his nose when he read your post. (he and I had conversed about the wide variety of some of the boats I looked at).

I'll give some thought to your comments and post a response later.
