I've been working and saving to buy a boat and sail for a few years for a while now, and I'm finally getting close to my goal dollar amount to start really looking for a boat! I'm super excited about it but I've never actually spent any significant time on a sailboat. All the research
in the world can never make up for hands on experience, which brings me to my question:
Does anyone in the destin-orange beach area have a 35+ sailboat at a marina that they aren't living aboard
and wouldn't mind me spending a night or two on? I would be willing to contribute some cash and or labor to the deal, and I won't even touch the dock
lines, nor crank the motor
. I just want to get a feel for what the living conditions will be like to help me make the best decision I can make when I buy my own.
I know this is a long shot, and to make it an even longer shot, the only time I'm off work (I cash in my vacay days for the cruising kitty) is between 1 July and 5 July. If you wouldn't mind helping me out I would be very grateful.
Thanks a lot guys!
