partner wanted :southern beater

looking for a partner : proposing to purchase, fix up, an old "beater"
something that needs a little tlc , under $3,000.
We split purchase, tlc, and anchor her somewhere warm,
Want to have a cheap boat in a warm clime
for example:
right now I know where there is a farrier trailer tri for $3,000
on ebay you can often find mid 20 ft sailboats around $2000.

Just looking for some adventure away from the gray :cold: north
messing around with boats , doing some travel, fish'n , etc

I'm in a warm place, looking to escape back up to the gray, cold, north. I'll keep an eye out for ya, maybe we'll pass each other on our way. (:

Cheers.

I had a similar idea and posted it a couple of years ago with no luck. Difference was that I was looking to put a little more money into a newer, 32'-36' boat that I could be comfortable living on for two or three weeks at a time. With live-aboard slips available in the Miami/Lauderdale area for $500 a month, 3 or 4 partners could make it pretty affordable. The boat could be put on the hard for the 6 hot months when boating up north is desireable.

I live in Iowa. Where in the cold do you call home?

Nova Scotia, Canada;I own a couple of boats here
The thing with having less of a boat is that it can be left on anchor for free.
Also I can handle spartan accommodations for short periods, but i would also utilize resorts, hotels, etc to give me a little luxury too.

I would be interested in talking with you about doing something with the Farrier. I build trimarans and am in Florida with a boatshop and property. PM me, Scott

Unless that is a Farrier Eagle/Tramp, I would stay well away from it. Any larger trimaran going for $3000 is going to be in really rotten shape with a lot of work necessary and will probably have an actual negative value.

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.
