Looking at buying my first boat. A Rhodes 19. It looks to be a little older, and the bottom needs a scrape, could use some paint, but the rigging is all new, bright-work is only a year gone, and I hope to bring it back. Comes with a two-stroke with about 100hours on it. All for 1400 american. Deal or no deal?
Whenever I find myself growing grim about the mouth; whenever it is a damp, drizzly November in my soul; whenever I find myself involuntarily pausing before coffin warehouses, and bringing up the rear of every funeral I meet; and especially whenever my hypos get such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from deliberately stepping into the street, and methodically knocking people’s hats off – then, I account it high time to get to sea as soon as I can.
