Re: Small affordable sailboats with ample storage? (planning to live aboard)

Sal, it doesn't HAVE to be both trailerable and liveaboard-able. I'm fairly confident that I can find a boat either already in lake MI or close enough that shipping costs would be reasonable.

And...

Chicago/Lake Michigan sailors: What carrier has the best cell coverage?

I'm curious as to people's experience with different mobile carriers on Lame Michigan. Have you noticed that one carrier seems to maintain signal better than others further into the lake? How about...

Re: Small affordable sailboats with ample storage? (planning to live aboard)

Bljones, I hadn't considered the 12v charging situation! Thanks for pointing that out. I need some kind of complicated solution to charge batteries with an outboard at all, don't I? I don't plan on...

Re: Small affordable sailboats with ample storage? (planning to live aboard)

So, I'm having a debate in my mind as to whether I should look for an inboard or outboard motor, but I'm leaning towards outboard because I feel like it would allow for more living space on the...

Re: Small affordable sailboats with ample storage? (planning to live aboard)

Why so sore?
There's plenty of boats in my price range that fit my criteria. I didn't say I wanted a giant yacht with 5 berths. I'm just looking for a bed, a toilet, and a hanging locker. Seems...

Re: Small affordable sailboats with ample storage? (planning to live aboard)

I certainly won't rule out any boat that I can afford, the bigger the better! As long as I can keep it somewhere to work on it and get it into lake michigan at the beginning of the season next year,...

Cold won't be much of an issue, as i will only be in the slip from may thru october. And height is something to consider, but not crucial, as i'm a fairly short fella

I'd like to be able to do some coastal cruising, no more than a day or two away from the slip a month though. And the head being enclosed would be a plus, but isn't imperative.

Hi everybody!

I've decided that I will be living aboard a small sailboat during the 2014 season in Chicago. I've found my marina of choice, and worked out a budget of 3000 max for the cost of a...

I certainly wouldn't turn down a 26s, but I have a feeling most are out of my price range.

Re: Looking for Venture/Mac 24-25 (non-motorsailor)

Thanks for the help! I'll travel anywhere that could still reasonably be called the midwest.

I should have been a little more specific though. The cheaper the better, trying to keep it under 2500...

Re: Beginner in a Macgregor-Venture 25 on Lake MI

A river launch would be a treat, yes. But as I've never been on the south branch, being able to do it at least once would be a blast. I don't have to have a sail up to have fun do i?

Re: Beginner in a Macgregor-Venture 25 on Lake MI

River would be all motoring. I wouldn't raise until I was out on the lake. those bridges are less than one block apart actually, but I know what you mean.

Re: Beginner in a Macgregor-Venture 25 on Lake MI
