Connecticut. I can possibly get down to New York or as far east as Newport RI for gas money. If you need help checking out something on Long Island, I'd be willing to do it for expenses. I am opposite Port Jefferson and can sail there easily...any place else would require driving to inspect something in a reasonable amount of time.

Re: New Boat Buying Assistance List

Hello,

I can't volunteer yet, but we are in the process of purchasing our first sailboat. My wife and I are new to sailing and hope the forum will help provide the info. we need.

There are two boats that could be ours. One is a 1980 CS27 and the other is a 1980 Hughes 31. Our gut tells us the CS27 is a better place to start?

One is Kingston and one in Toronto...we are in Port Dalhousie, St.Catharines. Which ever boat we purchase we need to bring home, which is a concern because of our experience (none). This is my first thread and I'm not trying to hijack any thread. Just not sure where to start, sorry.

Look forward to being part of this community.

Cheers,
Ron

Re: New Boat Buying Assistance List

Hey - can any of you chuckleheads tell me what kind of cat this is? I just bought it.



They (PO) said it's a Hobie, but it doesn't quite have that upturn in the bow like most Hobies. But I've searched AMF, Chrysler, Prindle, nacra, etc. - and nothing looks exactly like it (although the Prindle is close, it doesn't have the stand-offs for the tramp).

I'm keeping the mustard yellow and rainbow stripes...and buying myself some neoprene bell-bottoms.

This is going to be FUN!

(PS - I dutifully followed Dog's boat buying tips and passed on a survey.)
