Re: Local boat buying assistance

yep, very long, but not many people along it, with Perth/Fremantle as the major city/harbour and a few smaller ones like Albany, Bunbury, and Geraldton.

Then a few minor (fishing and recreational) harbours like Esperance, Augusta (being build), Busselton, Manduarah, Jurien, Dongara, Carnarvon, Exmouth and Broome (hmm not really much of a harbour). The remainder of the coastal towns do not have harbours, at best some protected mooring areas and those towns are smallish ie <1000 people.
I did not mentioned the super large harbours/loading facilities of iron ore and LNG (liquid natural gas) in the north of WA, but these are generally areas to be avoided by the cruising folk.

Anyway for what it is worth.

Re: Local boat buying assistance

I am looking at a Cheoy lee 36 and a Pearson 32 the cheoy lee has been out of water for 6 years and slightly neglected but in my eyes workable. My significant other wants a neater and newer looking boat. I want to love the boat I get. THe cheoy lee will need a seasons work to make her look neat and good. Both are in the same price range and I can buy today if I want. I am in the south shore of Massachusetts area.

Re: Local boat buying assistance

I'm in the Atlanta, GA area, up in the northeast right by Lake Lanier and not that far from Lake Hartwell in SC, so if anybody is looking at anything in this neck of the woods I'll be happy to lend a hand and some time. I could also swing Lake Allatoona on the other side of Atlanta, if anybody really wants to sail over there!

Just keep in mind I'm a relative newbie just searching for my own first boat now, so I'm hardly one to offer any expert opinions. I am a professional photographer however, so I can promise to come back with good photos for you at the very least!
