unfortunate but it is what it is

plan is to go down once or twice a year with provisions and parts and get here ready for the bid cruise that we have postponed with the kid and wife since this change in plans

I had the idea of renting the boat out to people who are qualified sailors and or just want to hang out and fish off the side and stuff.

Thats what my uncle will be doing with it, play with the dinghy, fish, dive, etc...

so it wont be abandoned per se.

However if things go real well here, then the obvious choice would be to sell it to someone who wants to finish off the project.

I still have a yanmar inboard thats ready to go in, sayes rig, SSB, the whole cruising lot.

just needs decoration and finishing touches.

but its hard to sell from a distance and honestly that baby is a work of love for me...so maybe not sell anytime soon

anywhooo

there are a BUNCH but they are way overpriced when compared to california boats or other east coast boats...maybe its just me

they do have an islander 36 though! jajaja bit big for the lake

having said that lake lanier is a solid 3 hours from here give or take...

Im looking for something withing the hour range as I will be really busy at the restaurant and on days off keep driving to a minimum

I do have a nice 2wd isuzu rodeo I got for cheap and have been fixing up and it can tow around 4.5k lbs...soooooooo a j24 with a light trailer is max for me...

short distances

thanks
