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.

Wow. My new feathering prop is the same price as his two boats. That's a lament, not a boast.

Seriously, though, it's a great time to pick up a Good Old Boat that is seaworthy and sound, but narrow, dark and unstylish and maybe a trifle pokey. A lot of people who bought 25-33 footers in their late 30s in the late '60s-1980 are either too old to want to sail now, or have moved up to bigger boats or trawlers. The entry-level classic plastic refuses to die and is practically given away as the cost of repairs (high due to lack of skilled labour and the amount of damaged boats from worsening weather) exceeds all but sentimental value. A friend of mine went from a Shark to a late '70s Pearson 30 in near-mint condition for just ten grand last year, and he is extremely happy with that extra six feet and the nearly six feet of headroom.

While it takes a fair bit of handiness to keep these boats together (tabbing bulkheads and inspecting keel bolts becomes an issue, but a solvable issue), it's rarely worth it to beautify them beyond new, non-brown-plaid cushions and maybe a new head and the removal of dodgy gate valves and house-grade wiring. Most of them will take an outboard, which may be a better bet than fixing an elderly inboard, and the engine space holds a LOT of cargo.

Another idea is to lay in solar panels or a small genset instead of the engine to give you enough electricity to run refrigeration and lights, making even a 27-footer a nice one-man liveaboard. You'll never make your money back on such a boat or such "renovations", but if you like the liveaboard life, you can do it for little money and a fair bit of comfort while preserving the sailing qualities of the boat to do extended coastal travel.

Congratulations!

Three slow monohulls tied together do not make a trimaran, unless you are a portagee barge sailor.

Jags,

I think you have a case of BADD, Boat Attention Deficit Disorder. You're sure to have some fun though! Congrats.

Thumbs up

I sold the Tartan to a friend of mine David Jackson. He and I after all of a weeks worth of sailing in the St. Johns River on the Mirage decided to sail the Tartan up from St. Augustine yesterday. We left the inlet @ 12:30 pm and arrived at the Jetties in Jax just after 2 AM. On the way out of the inlet two catamarans were sailing NE with us, but they cut off and back towards the inlet a few hours into the session while we kept cruising offshore in a NE direction while waiting for the wind to switch more towards the south, we jibed west at sunset. Never sailed in the ocean or at night before. That was classic. Totally stoked this morning. Chao
