Re: Sailing around the world in a small sailboat
I made an offer on a Flicka. really liked the boat. The owner was a trust fund baby who was stuck on his price. I came close to his asking but we couldn't come to an agreement. Just on principle I'm not paying asking for anything. My loss, but life goes on.
I've also looked at a bunch of Tritons. What a cool boat! This fueled an interest in other older Pearsons. Which i also really like. But, to me, the fact is I'm not ever going to sail around the world. Just not on the bucket list. The give up on these older designs is in living space. And, since i'm not going any further than the Bahamas, there are many newer designs that can handle that task.
That said, again, I'm a big fan of many of the boats on that list.
