greetings feom Missouri
Hi, y'all. I'm an inland sailor, about as far inland as one could get. From here it's about the same distance to the Atlantic, the Pacific, or the Gulf of Mexico. The great lakes are close, in relative terms, with the closest point of Lake Michigan not much over 600 miles.
I just bought a Nor'sea 27 and a trailer to fit it. It's still floating in the Pacific Ocean, in Monterey Bay. We're going to go get it next week and tow it home, plunk it down in 25,000 acre Stockton Lake in central Missouri. We hope to transport her to salt water for vacations from time to time.
If Seablossom isn't the only junk rigged Nor'sea 27 in the world, she's one of few.

Kewl! Trailer her over to Lake Perry KS some weekend. Good wind and great little sailing community of die heart sailors that are out each weekend.

thanks Sabrina
But I probably won't be trailering over. Seablossom is a Nor'Sea 27 and weighs 8100 pounds buck nekkid. She's "transportable" more than "trailerable". Takes a crane to get the mast out, at least right now. We're renting a slip for her down at Stockton.
I'd have answered sooner but my login got flummoxed and I had to get help from an administrator to open it back up for me.
