Re: One Way to 'Do the Dream'

If the price is right, it's not going to matter really; he will have done the right thing.

If that's your brother driving it in the photo, he sure looks like a sailor already!

Note to self: don't patch white sails with black patches..
I can not believe she is 23500Lbs .My boat (52 footer) is not really very heavy built but it has gross displacement almost 32 metric tons???

Re: One Way to 'Do the Dream'

Good for them and good for you to have a boat to crash on. That beard your brother's just belongs to be on a boat. Though he probably could also make a few bucks around Christmas time as a department store Santa. But, good luck finding a department store on some of those islands.

I was telling all the folks in Thailand that he was Santa on vacation and they better be nice to him or no prezzies for Christmas...

I may have the weight pretty far off. It may be 23,000 kilos...

I did the same thing. The only one that has a similar waterline profile (once you take the pilot house, sprit and rear porch out of the equation) may have been one of the Tahitian models.

Still unclear to me.

Boat finished the sea survey and is now on the hard. He is days away from doing the deal. I am so excited for him (and me - LOL)

Cheers

Re: One Way to 'Do the Dream'

yes Dan we are smitten. The boat is 22,000 kilos and after looking at so much sand at the station we are sure to enjoy a bit of water around us. We move out of the hotel at 6.30am and head of to live aboard for a week until we sail off to Langkawi. Also, the boat is 42 footer without the bow sprit and aft barbie deck

Looks like she has chain plates for a mizzen.

Re: One Way to 'Do the Dream'

those chainplates can be converted to being ladder mounts for a boarding ladder if need be, if not to be rigged as a ketch.
