Re: Retiring soon...

Hey Eric - You kinda talk about this sailing thing like it is, at best, a financial plan. Maybe you want to try to find something you really like and pursue that. Nothing about life on a boat is...

Re: VHF with AIS/GPS

Re: Pacific Seacraft - three (3) models. Comments?

My bad, I was thinking the 31 (not the Mariah but the newer 31) it has a very unique interior (aft head, open vee berth, aft double, etc). I agree the Crealock 34 is gem but it was out of my price...

Re: Pacific Seacraft - three (3) models. Comments?

I think you should get on some of these boats. I was obsessed with PSC for a while back when boat hunting. Some quick thoughts: the Mariah feels like a much older design (and is). The finish is...

Re: Major water ingress - best emergency device?
