Chances are the owner will be very happy someone actually made an offer and will take her off his hands.
The reason it would cut into my sailing time is because I like to spend a lot of my free time with my family
. If I am sailing on a laser or dinghy than I won't sail as often as I would on a larger boat. My wife and baby daughter wouldn't spend a weekend on a laser sailing but they would on a larger boat. Also if I spend money
on a laser than it will cut into my sailboat budget
. That's why I have been looking for a sailing dinghy that can double as a dinghy for a larger sailboat.
I didn't say I was planning on making an offer. I also didn't say how low I would be willing to offer because this is a public forum and the owner was a nice lady. You can assume that if I decide to make an offer it will be low enough that should I decide to scrap the boat I won't lose a dollar.
This cumulus is a boat that I will never take past the straits of juan de fuca. I could possibly learn on it and turn into a comfortable puget sound
cruiser with a small budget
and some hard work. I would still need a sea trial and the chance to do a self survey
before I would even think of buying
. I'm going to be spending my time researching coastal cruisers suited for the puget sound
. When I get another sailboat that I have questions about I'm sure I'll ask around here so you will get a chance to ridicule me some more since you seem to like it so much
