ok, so, after some basic preliminary investigation I am considering a pearson triton as my first liveaboard/crusing boat. I''m currently on a little 22'' day sailer, but long to have a boat with.. oh... a real head, a shower, luxery items like that.
realy though, I''ve been looking at the saucilito built boats, as the thought of recoreing a wood cored deck spooks/annoys me.
I like the fact that they''re supposedly solid, and I like the asthetics of the alberg designs. I heard they sail ok, and I the pricetag (sometimes under $8000) is realy atractive. I''m ok doing work on older boats. (just finished rewiring and brightening my little 20''er for sale)
I''m ok doing some work, and I dont need a race boat, but I want something that''s solid built and that I can single hand as my skills get better. I want to do primarily coastal cruising for now, but going around the world isnt too far, and will probibly be on my next boat. my "coastal cruise" may extend as far down as peru depending on my funds.
but enough of plans. people who own them or who''ve sailed them, or who''ve found reasons not to, please give me some feedback and your own personal experiences.
