Re: Fortune 30
Congrats. You got a lot of boat for your buck.
I looked seriously at her a couple of times last year when the previous owner had her on the hook in Sidney. The Volvo was dead and the owner was rather "eccentric" so I passed. It had my preferred interior layout but the one I eventually bought had a unique one with the quarter berths accessed from the main cabin so I ended up O/K.
Merc. looked to be a pretty solid boat but it needed a lot of sprucing up cosmetically due to being a liveaboard on the hook.
Check the thread "Sloops new cutter" for info & pics of my boat.
If you have any questions, run your post count up to 15 in one of the junk threads and PM me. I also have the pics I took of her when I was looking so you'll be able to see what the last owner did to her.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
