Sage, get down to the marinas and yards. Kick tires, talk to folks, get invited on board. You'll find the city, then the neighborhood, then the street, then the house.

Re: New to Sailing world

Hi mates. In actual fact, in my opinion it doesn't matter which boat you buy.
This boat will be some sort of wife to you. You have to love her and that depends on having a soulful connection. Look around in your price range and when you feel a little tug at your heart then that is your boat. You can sail a bathtub and be happy as long as you love her. Then go to Amazon and download to your kindle the "Around-The-World Sailing Guide" and away you go. Bon voyage.

Re: New to Sailing world

San Diego is a generally light air sailing region - 18 knts and people think it is blowing too much to go out.

Any boat you use in the SD area will have to be a good light air boat.

If you want to find out what live a boards look like - check out mooring field by Harbor Island.

Well, since you are old enough to make a decsision...lol. ( carry over joke from another thread)
I was just looking at sailboatlistings.com California and there are a loy of cool boats in your area. If you are mostly looking for a liveaboard there is a clasic wooden ketch named Seawolf in San Diego for $18,500.

Re: New to Sailing world

Capt Aaron...thanks for doing a little research. My question on a wooden boat would be how difficult will it be getting the boat insured. I have heard that wooden boat are nearly impossible to insure and since all Marinas require insurance......?

Re: New to Sailing world

Ya, they can be a night mare, That's why it's going for a song. I don't know much about insurance, I'm sure some one here does. But people have wooden boats so it's obviously possible. We are selling our dive boat and the insurance is carrying over, It's in a marina now so it might have ins. you can work with. Who know's?

Re: New to Sailing world

Sageman,
Something no one has brought up is the availability of acceptable moorage. I passed through San Diego a few years back heading south and thought I might leave my boat there for a period of time. I found that the marinas were very expensive and the anchorages were for the most part filled up. Liveaboard is a whole other issue. If possible, you might look for a boat with a slip that will go with it and save yourself a lot of possible grief. As far as the right boat? There will be no question when you find the right one....you'll know beyond a doubt. Especially if you can stand up straight! I lived aboard for over 15 years and loved it. Gone cruising again.

Re: New to Sailing world

Re: Hardin wooden boat. I do like wood, this one needs work...but its a boat... Since I am a craftsman and can build, design, create and maintain wood, it could be a beauty. The fact that the wooden Hardin's were built in Japan, I am sure the craftsmanship is superb. I just joined Wooden Boat Forum to get more info on these boats. I'm a classic maybe I need a classic boat.
Re: San Diego Harbor...thanks for the info, I do have a contact with Carol at Coronado Marina on Harbor Island.
Again thank you all for your comments.

Sageman
