Reality sucks if you stare at it long enough. As do Dreams and Sailboats and Lives.

People that sail the deep blue seas probably close their eyes more than others to a lot of things. Then you look at those same people with their teeth clenched, gripping a duct-taped tiller, and their eyes so suddenly and wonderfully alive.

I say don't take anyone down with you, and it all makes sense.

I agree on the looks, but the couple I've been on seemed gloomy and claustrophobic down below with all the dark teak.... a case of overkill I feel that deters many potential buyers...
But as you say lovely to look at externally...

You've GOT IT in a nutshell TY....

I forgot to mention the cost of the duct tape. Waterproof duct tape is about double the cost of regular.

I owned daysailers for many years. When I decided to buy a cruising boat, every singe experienced crusing sailor I knew told me to take whatever you think it is going to cost and then double it. This advice came from rich sailors and poor sailors alike. It was good advice.

So if you have Motissier's skills and can build a boat from newspaper and roofing tar to take you across the Atlantic, I wish you luck. Otherwise, plan to spend double.
