What happened CC?

CC, did you buy the boat? If you did not buy the boat would you mind sharing the factors that shaped your decision?

I haven't pulled the trigger on anything yet. I still have to sell the house first. The only thing I didn't like about the boat was a lack of a traditional settee. The sorry excuse for one that it has leaves my head to smack the deck join when I lean back. I'm eyeballing a replacement strategy for that issue. I spoke with Robert Perry while helping him move into his new digs last Saturday and told him somemore about the boat. He was impressed with it and said what he really liked about the Nordic 44 was how balanced and easy it sailed. The hull isn't a slow design as it rates at 84 PHRF NE. DENR, you live where? If you were from the US, you would understand that "Mamma" means wife when used in this context. When ya have to live with a woman, it pays to get her tacit approval on a big-assed boat BEFORE ya spend money on it, unless ya really wanna sleep and sail alone.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I just opened this thread this morning and realized it was about a local (to me) boat. We keep our boat in La Conner too. Have you checked to see if you can keep the dock space if you buy the boat? Dock space can be hard to find for certain sizes.

Not yet Ray. I'm just kicking tires and narrowing down the field prior to pulling the trigger. Damn I hate waiting.

Hey Erps, I've seen your boat somewhere recently, and I haven't been to LaConner in the last 6 mos. Were you at Anacortes or Blakely Is. or possibly Canoe Cove or Cowichan Bay,BC lately?

CC, beautiful boat, isn't there a dinette up in the pilothouse? or could you put one there? As far as moorage goes, Cap Sante just put in a bunch of new slips, but they may be bigger than you would need. They are going to rip out ours soon to put in more big slips. Good luck on the boat. John

Greetings John,

We're out and about year round, although we stay pretty close to home in the dead of winter (Coronet Bay). Our other favorite spot is Doe Island. It's just one of those little spots where you can often tie up to the float and have the whole Island to ourselves (doh!-forget I said that). We were over to Spencer Spit and went by Blakely Island recently as well as going by Anacortes. There is usually cold beer in the box. Stop by next time.

Nah, the PH is pretty small and has two bench seats on the back wall that are fine if you're 6' 2 " or shorter, I'm 6-4. The only sorry excuse for a dinette is on the Portside and has a funky little fold out table that would end up in file 13 if I bought the boat.

Luv it on forums like this, "didn't I see that boat recently smoehweres......?!?!?!"

Just like when I went thru the lacaonner canal taking my boat to MSC in anacortes to have some owrk done here, I saw the Boat CC is looking at moored with the forsale sign on it! I'll hopefully be picking my boat up to head to poets cove next weekend.
