washer and dryer
hi stan-I'm pretty far north right now-Edmonton Alberta-and cold-snowed today(yes on may30)-will end up on the coast in/near vancouver or on vanc Island-a dryer in the winter for sure-with a slip-power wouldn't be a problem(I think),was browsing at the jeneau 50DS (prefer the 45)-washer is an option---last time I went sailing was 1986-no cell phones,no internet,satelite com.,solar panels,water makers ect.-when I'm ready to retire or semi retire in about 5-6 yrs-well these boats and equip have come a long way,in another 5 yrs who knows.As for afordability-a 2 bed condo in victoria (comparable to what I have here) is prob 700k-I could actually save 400k(with a few years old model)-plus not have the expense of running 2 cars,taxes,condo fees-ect.,the cost would be comparable( I can justify this somehow)-starting my boat fund this year anyways and once I sell my buisness-sailing to someplace warm in the winter sounds pretty nice to me,some home style comforts along the way wouldn't hurt either.First I'll learn how to sail though.
