Biased? Not much lol!!!!!

Re: Would you rather own a sailboat or a RV?

I vote for small boat towed behind an RV/Truck and camper combo.

Best of both.

Re: Would you rather own a sailboat or a RV?

There is actually a perfect way to make this decision scientifically proven to result is a perfect choice, and it can be done cheaply without going off and buying either a yacht or an RV.



Get yourself a copy 2 movies:

RV with Robin Williams
Captain Ron


Watch both of these entirely realistic versions of both life styles and then make your decision.

I have those but still need bigger boats for offshore. I guess a norsea 27 is trailerable but she wouldn't be suited to mountain lakes or the delta waterways. The fact is one really can't have too many toys can he/she?

????????????????????

It's true "WE, Jill and I" don't just drop in any place. But other Nor'Sea owners do! See our Youtube video of the last HPCC (Havasu Pocket Cruisers Convention) on Lake Havasu at:


BUT, we just spent months cruising from the San Francisco bay the Delta! Towed from Az. to Napa, dropped in, spent a month or so in the San Francisco Bay, Oakland Estuary, Angel Island, Berkley, Pier 39 +++, Then up into the Delta as far as Stockton and most of the way to Sacramento.

Have a batch of video that I may post on YouTube at some point.

Planning now for a Mardi Gras & on to Florida cruise from Feb. to June 2014.

The draft on an NS27 is 3'10". So long as the water it's in is deeper, and plenty of open water, it'll sail there. These boats are made to go anywhere.

I thought an RV might be nice but I never could figure out how to get the jib up.

What are you pretending not to know ?

Re: Would you rather own a sailboat or a RV?

If one is towing a boat on a trailer, is it at that time considered an RV? Just say'in I could live with that
