There's a Norsea 27 aft cockpit in the slip next to mine. Been watching it slowly decay for the last 4 years. The owner comes down about once a year, tightens the dock lines, and leaves. A foot of growth on the bottom, mould all over the running rigging, brightwork drying out and cracking. What a shame.
Truly a shame but I understand. Hard to let go of the dream.

That's too bad. Maybe someone can try saving it from the owner.

I tend to say I saved my boat from the previous owner but it certainly wasn't THAT bad, no matter how much work I've had to do... and have yet to do on it.
Daniel @Rhapsody-NS27 would you mind PMing me. I don't have enough posts yet to PM you and I had a couple of questions about an aft cockpit Nor'Sea.

I have an aft cabin Nor'sea. If you want, ask me and I will ty to answer your questions. Might be good to have opinions from different owners.
Thanks @Skipper Jer. They aren't really questions so much as thoughts on how he likes his aft cockpit. There are so few around and I know most people opted for the aft cabin version. BTW, is you boat still for sale and if so do you have a trailer?

Yes we have a triple axle trailer and no she is not for sale at this time. We put her up for sale to buy a bigger boat for extended family trips. But after several conversations and reflection came to the conclusion that when a larger boat was required it would be more economical to charter one rather own one full time. I'm in the process of adding additional equipment to make sailing a bit easier, dodger, roller furler, maybe lead the lines to the cockpit.

there is one in Kansas that may be still for sale. 15K.
I think that's really wise. It's hard to resist stepping up to a larger boat but honestly I think the 27-30 ft is about perfect size. Nor'Sea 27, Baba 30, Shannon 28, Westsail 32 (though a little larger than I'd probably go).

Hey Daniel. Happy birthday! I'm in Destin, FL and after 5 years of being without a boat, the bug has come back and bitten me hard. The Nor'sea has always been one of my favorites but I'm wondering if giving up that extra foot or two in width is worth it for the trailerability, which I may never use. BTW I sent you a PM, thanks for getting back with me.
