I bought a boat. PSC 25

Well after years of looking at and around boats I finally bought my liveaboard. I've looked at 24-37 feet FRP and steel. I've always liked Pacific Seacraft boats and found a 1978 25 footer nearby. It was in the paper and I almost didn't go look at it. I had already written it off because it doesn't have standing headroom. The 19 footer I have now doesn't either and it was a deal breaker for my liveaboard. Until I saw the boat and crawled around it. It was to good of a deal to pass up, and I really liked the boat. The idea of a cruiser without a mortgage attached to it sold me from the beginning. No bills means more cruising, less working. It needs a lot of work. I just finished ripping up the entire main cabin so I could change out the water and fuel tanks in the bilge. Going to rebuild the furniture and cabinets. It's been a great learning process and I have a lot of skilled friends to help out. I'll try to post some pics. Brandon

Oh well I can't get the pics to upload. I'll try again later

get a photobucket account, the pic uploading on sailnet has never worked.

Dictated, but not read.

Snider-

Congrats on the new to you boat... read the post in my signature, as it has a good description of how to get photos on sailnet.... not using their posting feature, since it's basically busted.

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.

Brandon,

Congrats (again)!!

So, did you end up with a Mark 1 or Mark 2 (sprit) ? Standard full keel, or one of the very rare keel/CBs?

P.S. The boat on Yachtworld that you posted a link to appears to have an add-on sprit, different from the standard one seen on the Mark 2. If you ended up with a sprit-less Mark 1, boy wouldn't it be nice to add a sprit like that one!?

Psc 25

It's a full keel with cutaway forefoot. Also it's a sloop rig with the bowsprit. The previous owner said the sprit was from the factory but it was replaced due to hurricane damage. If it didn't have the sprit I would add one. It helps so much with the sail area and just looks right. I linked to some photos on the yahoo group. Not sure if you can see them without being a member.
