Spent the morning on a 45' Sloop...too cool.

The GF and I got a tour of 45' Morgan/Starratt(sp?) today. It's owned by Larry Turner of Port Orchard. He is the only owner of record. Commisioned himself in 1976-77. It is currently for sale for $40k on Seattle Craigslist. <---link

I sent him an email through CL and told him we were just tire kickers but we planned to step up to something of that size in the years to come. He not only gave us a full tour of "Tern II" but told us some good sailing stories and even bought us lunch after. Heck of a guy.

The Tern II is a cool boat. Set up to sail fast and far in cooler climates. The small diesel heater was nice except the GF will need a heater in our boat now. Full shower, standing headroom. Pretty cool history with trips up to Alaska and through the South Pacific to New Zealand.

It was nice to get an idea of what a 45' boat looks like inside and let the GF get a feel for what life aboard would look like. It seemed odd that such a large heavy boat would move as much as it did as I stepped on.

Now we just need to crew on a large boat.

Great boat, well equipped, great price. You don't really need crew for that boat, just practice and forethought.
