Well, the best boat that I can justify buying
is the little C&C
25. Its a fine boat and the best one for the muddy ohio
river upon which I live.
The thing is, its smaller than I want. Also, with my retirement
coming up, I want to buy the boat for where I want to be, not where I am.
But there is only one possible choice, another C&C
, a 1987 33 footer. Beautiful shape, assuming the balsa in the hull
s ok. They did a superficial cleanup of the boat and are asking too much for it, in my opinion. 28,500.
All of the rigging
, sails engine
etc are original. Appears to me that its on the cusp of needing a lot of new stuff.
I have not yet contemplated shipping
a boat in from elsewhere. There are a few locations a few days away by water
that have interesting boats,but I doubt I'll be motoring a boat 300 miles.in ,November.
At this point I'm thinking of waiting And watching the market.
I guess I don't need to be in a hurry to buy a boat so I can pay winter storage
on it before I ever sail it.
Any other ideas?
