Now you've done it.
Just wait and see what happens.

Giu Lecter, everyone knows that you have to have some fava beans to go with that liver and Chianti. Now put the lotion in the basket!

Wilsdad,
AWSOME BOAT, if a survey is done and shes in good shape. Like Cam said, this could be a money pit too. These baots are built to a very high standard, and that equals $$$ to fix and upgrade. If I ever move up out of my PSC Orion, my next boat would either be a Cabo Rico 38 or a PSC37. The Cabo Rico 38 is a Bill Crealock boat, and thats a very good thing. Some good friends of mine in my marina have a CR38, and it sails like a dream. On the Chesapeake, while other boats are running for cover from high winds and the dreaded chop, the Cabo Rico is eating it for breakfast and saving a little for a snack later. Of course you have to understand that this is not a light boat, and you'll need some wind to get her going.

Good taste in boats Wilsdad

Dictated, but not read.

Wilsdad,

I admire the Cabo Rico designs -- Bill Crealock designed both of the boats I've owned. I have been aboard many of them and they seem to be well built. They are solid, heavy, full-keeled blue-water passagemakers.

But I don't think a Cabo Rico is the best choice for a lake in Kentucky. I also don't think a 38-footer, particulalry of this variety, makes the greatest sail trainer. In your shoes, I'd be looking for something smaller, more nimble and responsive, and better suited to lake sailing. Something I could build experience and confidence on, not feel overwhelmed with, or stuck at the dock for upkeep.

If you hope to make sailing a lifelong pursuit, and hope to do some extensive voyaging at some point, first focus on developing your sailing skills. It's very difficult for a new sailor to hone basic skills on heavy displacment boats.

Just another point of view...

Wilsdad something seems fishy with that boat. He's asking 38K for it, not a trivial amount, but appears to be well below what's listed on this site or out here:


http://www.yachtworld.com/boats/Cabo-Rico/1


and noones replied to my inquiry

One thing that I'd like to point out to those reading this thread, is that although this boat is on a lake in Kentucky, it's not landlocked, it can weave it's way out to and down the Mississippi River and into the Gulf of Mexico (with some effort).
