BarryL Hi Guys,

Thanks for the info. However, I have decided to come back to reality and I won't be buying a boat this year.

In case you were interested, I was considering this boat:
2005 Beneteau Oceanis 373 Sail Boat For Sale - www.yachtworld.com

A 2005 Bene 373 for $80K seems like a real good deal.

eherlihy HEY!!! Let me know if you need crew!

ughmo2000 Barry there are a few questions that need to be answered before a true estimate can be given but typically your looking at crew transportation to and from the boat, boat expenses, (fuel, port costs, etc), and whatever crew compensation you've negotiated. If in a hurry it would take about three weeks +/- to NY.

Please check your PM's.

sailingdog PM BUBB2, he's a delivery captain and can give you some realistic answers.

Anyway, since you would know a lot better than me, what would a typical delivery of a 37' boat from the BVI to the Long Island sound (say Port Jefferson) involve? I would not be on the boat and I would hire a delivery captain. How many people? How long would it take? Rough costs?

Anything else?

Thanks!

ughmo2000 Because it's still cold, even more snow coming, and I don't have any deliveries lined up I had to read something to remind me of warmer days...

ughmo2000 With "Dangerous Damian" at the helm?

Saw 'em instruct an Irish tavern owner, who was Irish born and raised, who's professed speciality was Irish coffee, on how to make a "proper" Irish coffee. That long night ended up with the tavern owner giving us a ride back to the boat!


P.S. I'm lookin for another berth...

Zanshin BVI to France and an Irish Captain? Could that have been for delivery of a rather large Oyster?
