Re: Sailboat under $5000 for Puget Sound
I saw the ad for the Kent Ranger, it would be a great boat, and I haven't seen it in person, but I've got a feeling it hasnt been well cared for recently, I could be totally wrong though. From being slightly patient, and looking early season, I think for 4-5 I can find a boat that is ready to go. Not a Swan, but a good boat. Not that I'm trying to knock this Ranger, because for all I know it's awesome. It's on my list and I'll probably be surprised that one boat that looked perfect in the ad is bad in real life, and one that looked bad is nice.
Keep them coming though, unless they are owned by someone with the poor taste to paint it Orange or something. Really I'll take anything as long as it's not Orange. But I don't even know why I bring this up since the odds of me coming across an Orange sailboat for sale in the PNW are virtually non existent.
I am 'provisioning' tomorrow, which means I'm packing. Hopefully I'll go early sunday, but knowing myself I bet I go late sunday, early monday. It's 5-6 hours away.
