ok so is post whore time-- kissed and made up with a fellow entrenched medical
care renderer-- thankyou, therapy!
crazy?? PROLLY-- I DID buy a blown up and trashed formosa-- talk about kicking something when it is down--last po was temper driven at times. yipes.. so i have some wood to fix.. big deal. i got a helluva deal on a olid hulland deck
with some seemingly major stuff wrong-- replaced engine
, replaced deck
backing plate, and now to the biggest meanest thing i have ever inmy life seen--this lil speedbump called shaft log and packing gland
. wow... they dont have stuff like this on a cal!!!
berg--i think ye should go with the crazy bitch in the formosa
to the yard to see this stuff-- is impressive.
smaller boats with inboards have a more compressed view of what i have in a very very tight space-- ericson
had this done when i bought her-and engine
overhaul--al at once--no --not trying to sell her to ye..even if she can be trucked without a paid escort thru new mexico---- is 35x5x10. no oversize.
i have friend with a cal
34-- these boats can be purchased for sooo small a sum--cal 30s here run around 2500-and up depending on condition...solid, stout, basic BOtAT.
but try to find a less pricey-- hard to find in BRISTOL condition, in many cases, but they clean up well. bristol just means can charge more for asking price
smb--you do have a good point-- what better place to find a boat than being on one--is how i find and found mine-- all of them.. is like mate-- they find you, not we find them. think about it berg-- ye will meet me when yard time comes....dont overextend yourself until ye find the boat that makes yer heart patter....buying boats isnt practicality-- only in part--is passion makes ye love em and call em yours. is like a lover-- she will come to ye.....save the dough. i know lots of goo dplaces to look over on the other side--i paid attention on my cruise
....and in mean time, learn to sail so when ye get ther eis easier-- also, gaining access and disembarking is easeir on a boat that in rough water
holds a lil still for ye to climb aboard. and there is the on board fitness program.........
gord--that is exactly the catalogue i saw in sdmc... yup.. thankyoui see my part!! hoooyaaah.. but stll not the dang tubo--is not there-- is 30"x2"..yipes--is it a special order/creation?? this coul dbe interesting.......called sdmx for verification...
