Has anyone spent much time sailing or motoring on one of these?
I live on a river, OK a mile and a half from it but a shoal draft
motorsailor is about the most useful design for where I live. I like the pilothouse idea as sometimes the bugs can be pretty bad and it would provide a bit of protection from those. These apparently come with either an inboard or an outboard
in a well. Price
would have to be quite favorable for me to choose the latter, I'd prefer one with a diesel
A couple years off, but I've discussed with my kids
about taking a boat down the Mississippi
to New Orleans
, then having our truck and trailer there and trailering the boat to Ft Lauderdale or somewhere, relaunching and spend a week or two in the Bahamas
, sail back to the truck, load up and be home in 16 hours. Just started up a new biz, so realistically will be a couple of years in the future but never too soon to scope
out options. Not planning to do any sort of serious coastal or offshore
with whatever I get either.
Anyway, just wondering how one of these might be for 3-4 people for a few weeks at a time.
