I'm in the market for a bluewater liveaboard
, and I'm looking for a good deal, but I'm very much limiting myself if I stick to the Portland
area. Thus, I've expanded my search to the Pacific Northwest
at large, and perhaps the entire West Coast
My plan is to move onto the boat pretty much as soon as she's moored. I'd then continue working my job here for a few years, and then set sail to the pacific. In other words, buying
a boat in California
and starting my journey there really isn't my ideal solution.
That said, if I buy a boat in Seattle
or San Francisco
, how much of a head
ache is it going to be to get it to Portland
, and how much will it set me back? Looking at boats in either place isn't too big of an issue as they are affordable to reach.
I don't have the sailing skills to make the sail myself from either place (at least I don't think I do).
Is this the kind of stuff that's best handled by a brokerage?
