I bought it!

I decided on the Nordica 20 for my 2009 trip up the inside passage. She's getting some last minute prep before splashing her in. I'm very excited about this boat and the biggest step toward my dream being in the "done" column. The Nordica 20 seems the most seaworthy craft for the footage. THanks to all who offered suggestions about boats. Now all I have to get is a GPS, EPIRB, spare sails, auto tiller, depth sounder, VHF, more anchor rode, boat hook, solar charger, portapotti, dinghy, charts, a second job... Anyone looking to liquidate any of the above items at "cruiser budget" prices???????

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.

Congratulations! It looks like a great little boat - the perfect boat for your purposes. And double Congrats for not listening to all the second guessing nay-sayers on this board.

Here is a nice indoor propane heater that I use on my boat. It uses the 1lb propane cans.
