I am worrying not about what other people think of my dream, I just don't like having to defend mine to people whose boat and/or life style is centered around what other people think.

There are basically two types of dreams....the ones that just will never happen so might as well let pull all the%

Re: What's Your Dream Boat ?

For me…. The “Dream” is more about the destination than the boat that gets you there.

But once arrived…. that boat has my loyalty....

Maybe. But I call that reality and not dreaming. Important to not mix the two up.

We've been working on our shortlist recently. It doesn't include 50 footers or any $BiggyBucks specials. Since we hope to get in a couple years of cruising before permanent retirement, we are dreaming about 24' to 34' bluewater models. For example the Pacific Seacraft Orion 27, Shannon 28 or Bristol Channel Cutter. Like The Pardey's say, "Go small, go now." We posted our list of Needs and Wants along with some models that we liked on our Shortlist Page in our blog. Any similar models we should be considering?

Ach new keyboard....screwed up my post......meant to say:

There are basically two types of dreams....the ones that just will never happen so might as well let pull out all the stops , like the 70' on deck schooner built to the lines and rigged as a Gloucester fishing schooner(this boat is actually the "Alcyone" about 100' from mine) and to have her crewed to my liking.
But as this an never happen the boat I do have does not leave e lusting afer others, I am very happy with her and as I will never be in a position to get another/better boat....might as well make her a better boat.
two dreams....obtainable dream..unobtainable dream.
If you keep your fantasies from becoming too fantastic you will realize you dream..that does not mean you should not dream and try and realize as much of that dream as possible...you would be suprised what you can accomplish f you try

Do not assume what served others will serve you as well. I think the Dashews would disagree with the Pardeys...;-)

Read all the books, then make YOUR OWN choices.

Sail as many boat types / sizes as you can, then chose the one that will be the best tool for the sailing you are going to do.

Can't argue with that logic. We have 18 - 24 months to continue looking at the possible choices. We plan on being based out of The Gulf Shores area where a 4' or less draft would be important. Fun to dream and even more fun to start the search.
