Heading East!

We're leaving Chi Town tomorrow AM in search of sailboat gold. But we'll settle for iron. Whirlwind tour of 5-6 states in two weeks. Fingers crossed!

Re: Heading East!

What kind of boat are you looking for? If you like those heavy strong cruising boats like me, then look at that '78 Van de Stadt steel ketch for sale in Annapolis. I'm very satisfied with what I have, but if I were shopping, I's take a close look.

Re: Heading East!

We just got back last night around 2:30 AM. Long drives are way worse than long spells at the helm!

We looked at

Ericson 38-200 (6-7 of them)
Tartan 37C
Bristol 40
Moody 376
Sabre 38 (3 of them)
Tartan 372
Moody 419 (ugh!)

Pics? Yeah, probably over 1000 of them. The trip was more like a job than a vacation.

We didn't come home with a boat but we did come back much more knowledgeable. But even though the East coast is like a boat mall, we'll probably be buying something locally.
