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.

Unhappy i gave up...

I appreciate everyones' advise. But I gave up... I need to increase my capital to get something decent... I'm gonna take care of my old girl for another season or two to save some more for a decent boat... Apparently, sailboat owners love their boats so much not to sell them cheap Meanwhile, powerboats are rock bottom cheap! That shows who has the real sea soul...
I'll open this thread within a year or two again... But, I learned a lot though, thank you very much guys.

understand

Mert I am doing the same thing now. Keeping my little San Juan and saving up more cash to buy what I really want instead of what I am settling for that is better than my little boat. Plus I still need to build a mooring and buy a dink.

One comment I would make however is keep your eyes open. Don't automatically take your eyes off the market because you didn't find the right boat in 3 days. Heck, looking at boats is fun. Who knows, somoene may end up having to part with their Cat 30 due to divorce and offer a really good proce ( I just missed one like that.) So keep your eyes on the web and make sure people at marina's know what you are looking for.

blt2ski will become famous soon enough
I've heard of folks taking 2-3 yrs to find the perfect boat! per say. Or in one persons case on here, 2 yrs to build, now he has had her for 2 yrs, now wants a swan 45...........shaking my head!

Took spouse and I about 5 months to find something in the low 20 range that we trully liked and wanted to spend the money on her.

Mert,- Let me second BarryL's advice. I bought my boat ( a Sabre 30) through Warran Tarfton and I will say that the guy is great. I went on his site and i see that he has a 1984 28 ft Sabre MarkII for 23K. The Mark II is a fantastic boat, at least equivalent to the 30 footer. I don't know if you can stretch that far but these boats don't hit the market very often.
