Re: Local boat buying assistance

Any sailneters in the keys close to Marathon? I'm in Florida but at the other end of the state and would appreciate if someone could take a quick look see before I make the trip to see the boat. The pictures look great but I have seen great looking pictures and went to see the boat and ....... not so great

I could have a look on boats in Croatia, but it might take some weeks, as Im not there permanently.

Re: Local boat buying assistance

I am looking at an SJ24, $4600 Crown 23 $3000 and a Tanzer 22 $3000 in the next few days, I am on Vancouver Island. The boats are in Ladysmith, Nanaimo and Courtenay respectively.
I have sailed on many larger boats as a kid in the Bahamas, as a guest. I lived on Andros from 10 to 15 yrs old. As well as the local traditional local sloops and we had use of a Sunfish from the hotel.
I have a Prindle 16, Chrysler Pirateer 13 and a home built Opti/Sabot with a bowsprit running 56 sqft of a Delta wing hang glider for power...what can I say, use what ya got.
All of which I have 2 seasons sailing on.
So... a little knowledge is more dangerous than
I intend to daysail/weekend with my wife, who is a total lubber in the Campbell River area. For now, we will be fair weather sailors, running for shore/bays/marinas when she blows.
Ok, any comments/suggestions on the 3 candidates in our list?

If anybody is available to take a look at a boat in Galena, MD (near Georgetown, on the eastern shore), I would greatly appreciate it. PM me or leave a message here if you're able to help and we can work out the details, I'm happy to cover gas and whatnot if needed.

Re: Local boat buying assistance

Can anyone take a look at a boat for me on Cape Cod - take some pics so I can see if it's worth pursuing.

The boat is on a trailer at the owners house, so access should be easy. It's in Cotuit.

Please PM me. Much appreciated.
