Now that I have the boat she is actually ten times better than I could ever imagined.
FYI it was my eleventh boat, all eleven were purchased without a survey and I don't have any regrets on any of them.
tHE MORAL OF THE STORY IS i KNEW WHAT i WANTED, DID MY DUE DILIGENCE AND NOW i'M SAILING THE BOAT i WANT.
See I knew it was a great story. Thanks for sharing.

By the way what boat inspires that much passion?

The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.

Re: No Survey - No Deal!

She is a little old Hess 22 Sails like a dream passes practically every boat around. I can afford to maintain her perfectly and now that I have gotten used to how small she is she is very comfortable. I swear every time i row to shore which is about 120 days per year I look back at her on the hook and fall in love with her all over again. Very comfortable in a blow and sails a dream when all about are motoring. I sailed her engine-less for 2 years but now have a Yuloh and a small kicker. I could easily write a book about all the great features of this boat but I'm too busy sailing her.

Tim - yeah I know that Cordelia sold again. I PMed the guy (who is obviously VERY excited about owning such a beautiful boat) shortly after he bought her, and pointed him in your direction. Cordelia had many of the projects completed that I have since had to do on my vessel. My boat won't ever be in Cordelia's league of fit & finish, but I have had my paws on, and love, every icky inch of her bilge. I wouldn't trade my experience for money, because I will probably need the experience again someday.

Just curious - is this the same Cordelia owned by Nicklaus here? Did he sell already?
