Aloha! (<this is why I am having a hard time searching for this boat on this forum, so please re-direct me if this a "double post") ((also, I am new, and this is my official first post, so again, help me if I'm doing it wrong))
We have been looking at boats for a while, mostly via interwebs, but we have seen a good handful in person. We're wanting something between 30'-37', and we are located in East TN which makes it difficult to find any potential boats. (however we are planning a coastal trip to the gulf late summer to check some out) We did find an ALOHA 34 located very close to us! It is a good looking boat, but I imagine it will need lots of upgrading to be seaworthy
for what we want. We plan on fixing her up/sailing, then heading down the coast of FL, into the Bahamas
, and potentially beyond. We will need solar panels
, new bottom paint
So... I guess what I want is some advice.
I was wondering if anyone had any personal experience. How do you think she would fare on a Bahamian cruise
? Is she easy to sail single
handed? Do you think it's possible to potentially cruise
her to the Mediterranean
or beyond? Pros, cons, dislikes, likes... I'm all ears at this point!
