Thanks for the replies. Frankly I expected to be inundated with strong suggestions to take classes. Good advice of course. A survey has occurred to me but being on disability finances are constricting. I thought if I could buy a boat it would be a 26' Pearson or a 27' Catalina- outboard powered. Something like that. So a Bristol is a step up. All this time I have also been doing some research so formed some opinions and preferences.
My tentative plan is to spend the first day or 2 with Lysol, scrub brush and sponge. At the same time inspecting all the nooks and crannies. And proceed based on what I find. Timewise, I hope to be able to depart by mid- May. Its 2000+ miles on this route- 40 days at 50 miles per. And I'm not gonna be in a hurry. Stop and smell the roses pace. If I make Chicago on Labor Day thats just fine. I'll decide then if I'll put her on the hard for the winter or go south via Mississippi-Tennessee R-Tenn/Tom-Mobile.
Sailortjk1 I really appreciate your offer. Ya got all summer?
