Help True Blue Find His Next Boat

Post your suggestions for TB's next boat here.

Poor True Blue sold his beloved Nauticat. Now he is looking for a new boat. He hasn't formally defined the parameters, nor even asked for our help. But when has that ever stopped a SailNetter from offering unsolicited advice. Kibitzing is what we do, isn't it?

We have gathered from his various posts that he is "in the market for a small-midsized, well-crafted sailboat." (Sorry CD, but this rules out Catalinas ). Maybe he will give us more details about his requirements (cabin?, head?, price range?). Until he does, and starting small, here's my first suggestion:

Arey's Pond Daysailer 18:

Beautiful little boat. Wish I had one to tow behind my boat.

I'm sure you could. For a fee, anything is possible.

Talking

JP,
Really nice boat but I don't think it's for TB. I have heard from a reliable source that he's negotiating to buy Giu's former neighbor's boat. The kid may be unhappy to lose it though. It has a lot of custom touches he likes.

Man - leave for a few hours to spend some quality time with my chiropractor and wife (in that order (g), and I find T34 in classic form. Now we know what he TRUELY wants by his subliminal suggestion. Just go for it T3 - perfect for those windless Chessie days, and will surely make you the envy of your yacht club friends.

Now, John - that perky and firm little boat gave me a woody, a very pretty daysailer and raises my bar. I haven't done a search on her yet, but judging by pic 3, she's very trailer-able with a centerboard I presume. Nice - thanks for the link.

My parameters are a bit sketchy right now. There are two issues I'm dealing with - first, find a sailboat for daysails for myself and others who have equal appreciation. Problem is, it's a selfish purchase, not the cure-all panacea. The alternate is a mid-size, stiff sailboat to hopefully overcome my wife's heeling paranoia, with enough amenities to at least do weekenders. This of course requires a mooring or marina - extra expenses. This, ideally, would lead to a larger cruising sailboat.

Budget needs to be low for the daysailer option - knowing a big boat will eventually come about. If my wife wins over me with her trawler dreams, I would keep the sailboat. Ideally, the next boat will be the perfect one - without the need for having two boats.

So, dealing with my demons at the moment - at another indecision. I made the wrong choice with the Nauticat - don't want to do it again.

thesnort is on a distinguished road
Let me guess...The Macgregor is listed under vacuums because it sucks? Am I getting the gist of it?

That's far too much boat for him to handle.

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.
