I know the feeling of looking and researching boats. I am looking myself but no matter what I look at there is this Columbia
Challenger 24 I cannot get out of my head. It is an old boat small with nil for headroom and a few problems with a bit of water washing
up into the outboard
well when sailing but I like the boat. I single
and plan to stay that way so creature comfort is not all that important. Hell, I spent a year living in a homemade Weto or Indian dwelling. Everyone told I couldn't but I did and comfortably with only 5 foot headroom. There is room for a bimini
over the companion way and will add some head room.
Won't know exactly what I will get until I get my retirement
straightened out. Seems the company misused retirement
funds and now trying to give everyone half of what we were supposed to get. So, that means taking retirement before 65 you get half of the half.
I plan on coastal and Island hopping and not transatlantic sailing away.
