Another Landlubber

Tirelessly researching bluewater cruisers. Have decided on W32. All about my bucket list right. The problem is I have some mechanical abilty am able to address the repairs the boat will need, However lower fairfield county ct. does not offer DIy marinas as far as I know. What do all of you do when you work on your boats.

Haven't sailed since I was 15 but determined to start cruising in a few years.

Need feedback thanks

Well if it's an extensive refit, you could relocate to your home... then move it back (expensive, but at least you'd have it right where you need to work on it).

Re: Another Landlubber

If you have space and your neighbours won't burn you at the stake, taking the boat home for extensive work is absolutely the best way. Projects have a way of extending far beyond their initial time frames and hours spent commuting are costly and inefficient.

There are plenty of boat moving specialists who would be able to do this for you, it can be expensive depending on how far you're going, but the bulk of the cost is in the initial loading and unloading at both ends both ways. probably count on a boat buck ($1000) each way as a starting point. Plus de rigging and re rigging the boat.

But yard fees for long term projects can outstrip that cost in a hurry.

I think transportrules vary from state to state as to whether you'll need to pay for a pilot car or travel in restricted hours/routes, so check all that out first.

Since you're project-hunting, maybe keep an eye out for a neglected Baba 30 too, and others of that type.
