Re: Setting up for a couple of day off of the grid.

I would echo all the LED comments. I switched all the lighting on my Balboa 27 over to LED, and can run every light on the boat every evening (5-6 hours a night) for a week before even starting to...

Re: Just beginning to shop around... would love feedback/ideas...

Working on my one-year aboard my Balboa 27. It has a head (and will shortly have a functional shower as well), so I'm a little better off on creature comforts. Sorry to hear you're thinking about a...

Re: Why do you race

For myself, I am much more about melding machine and myself than I am about competition. I also still avidly trail ride motorcycles (at age 46), but even though on a trail I'm probably faster than...

Re: No Experience...

I honestly wouldn't. It so subjective, it just depends on the actual condition of the boat. Every owner has their own idea of what constitutes 'sailing condition'. The survey is what will tell you...

Re: No Experience...

That's a solid approach (both surveyed). Expensive sounding, but could save you major money and heartache later. And same here, just finished building my own house and shop. Once I finish refitting...

Re: No Experience...

But in doing it the way I have, I got a solid boat dirt cheap and that extra money gets spent where and how I think it is best applied.

Re: No Experience...

Re: No Experience...

Cost of a survey varies from what I've seen, but mine (for a 27 ft boat) ran in the neighborhood of $400.

Re: No Experience...

If what the owner says is backed by a survey and all the basics are sound (hull, etc), the fixer upper sounds like a solid functional project boat. Mine fell into the same category and I haven't been...

Re: No Experience...

Go for it Paul. I'm relatively new here too (mostly a lurker), but we have a few things in common. Grew up around boats, but never owned a sailboat before. Found one last year that spoke to me (an...
