Welcome to the forums . The one issue you will have on your grand plan will be the live aboard status. Those are hard to come by - but not impossible.

Good luck on your upcoming purchase - hope it all works out for you.

If I owned a boat in Seattle; I'd name it Sputnik

:laugher


You'll have to argue with the owner of one of the moore 24's that are local for that name then. Already taken if you will! A semi bright red one at that!

By the way, I'm not knocking Seattle in any way shape or form. I spent a week there last June (and probably will again this June) and absolutely fell in love with it! You guys live on the absolute edge of Eden.

If I had to pick a new place to live, Seattle would be first on my list.

Not sure about David, so will not speak for the him, even tho our boats are all of 40' N to S and 100 yds E to W of ea other. I did not see you knocking Seattle. Just having phun with a play on words. My comment re the name sputnik, there really is a red moore 24 named sputnik! One of the last 20 or so with an actual cabin top vs a flush deck!

If you're looking for a sail, let one of us know. David and I are about 30 min north of downtown seattle, Jodi's boat is in downtown, I believe there is another one or two that keep there boats at the same place...........

Awesome! I was in Seattle this spring for a conference and to take the offshore safety course at the North Pacific Fishing Vessel Owners Association. If I get the contract this summer I won't need to take the course myself; so I may have a few days free while my team is busy taking it. I would really enjoy that.

Thanks, Fred

Yep, don't be shy - Marty & David are class acts (me - not so much!)... you can find my schedule on my signature link for "HG". As the weather warms up will be more cruising oriented as right now we are in Race mode until spring...

Hey, I actually live in Bellingham and have two sailboats on Bainbridge, just south of poulsbo, one of them is for sale, a 1962 Columbia 29' full keel, great boat but the engine (diesel) is out right now, If your interested in projects Pm me and I can get you some more details. It's within your price range aswell. I'll get the engine in as soon as i get the chance but i live in another city so....who knows wen that will be.

Let's see, the one for sale is the 1962 Columbia 29' i sailed her halfway up the inside passage over the summer and spent far too many hours on the old and failing volvo-penta mb2a gasoline engine. when i got back i pulled it out to install the md6b (almost the same engine but diesel) i have for it. I rebuilt the engine beds with tight grain fir and 3m 5200, drained the tank. Now the tank needs to be cleaned, and a return line run for the diesel. The stuffing box should be re-packed, and the new engine is ready to drop in. it has a complete wiring harness and panel with it that just needs to be bolted in where the old panel was.

other than that the boat needs it's hatches varnished, bottom paint, and a new toerail. Everything is cosmetic except the engine and the boat is sailable as is.

now for the good stuff: very solid, fullkeel/cutaway forefoot, handles like a dream in seas, and in general. 6' headroom, newer head, tons of storage, good batteries, bruce anchor, long berths (sleeps four adults comfortably) autopilot, chartplotter/depthsounder, vhf, stern anchor with 300' rode, many many extras.

recent survey

I love the boat, built thick and strong and designed wonderfully, But I have an Ericson 32' that is taking all of my time, so she needs to go.

I can deliver the boat aswell, and if you wait long enough i might just get that engine in.

Very fairly priced, I have kept a sharp eye on the NW market for a boat like this for over 2 years now, still kind of do, I got a good deal on it and I will pass that on.

I live in Olympia, Findthejake. Also in the education business, also investigating a liveaboard situation though not as serious as you seem to be just yet. Did you end up buying a boat? If not, give this a look:
28' Newport $9,900

It's pretty close to what I'll be looking for eventually.
