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

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).
