From the Nor'Sea
"Very simply, the finest small voyaging vessel ever built."
"Nor'Sea 27 have made 4 Circumnavigation
and more than 160 Atlantic and Pacific crossings."
A pretty hard act to top, if you like this type of boat. If that's the boat that "sings" to you, then settle for nothing else. Because that's what you'll be doing. Settling. At this point in your experience, your gut is as good an indicator of what you should buy as any rational process. So you may as well go with it.
Keep looking. Someone mentioned one that hasn't moved in seven years. Maybe he'll tell you where it is? Seek out those boats. make offers. They'll say no. never! Leave them your number anyway.
The next time the slip rent comes due maybe they'll think of you. Once the seed is planted, it may gnaw on them. A month or two or three later, you may get the call.
States are now selling access what were once public information documents like boat and car registrations to private services. Maybe you can pay one of them to search out every Nor"Sea in the country. Query them all..
every marina and boatyard in the country. Would it take a week? Rule
out the ones far from blue water
Cast a wide net. And be patient. The one you want will show up.
