Who Loves Looking Over Boats ?

This Forum is amazing.
Thanks to the support of some really good folk here, we have a clearer idea of the condition of a boat in San Diego we are very interested in.

The 2 members enjoyed the exercise and so would I if the roles were reversed, so I'm dipping into the well again...

We are on a mission to find a boat and it would be helpful to know a little more about a couple of other contenders in 2 other locations.

So, if there happen to be any members in the Edisto Beach/Charlestown, S. Carolina area,

and

Trinidad, of all places...

your opinion on the condition of a couple of ketches would be hugely appreciated.

Answer here, or pm me, or my email is vichankins at yahoo dot com
Thanks again,
Vic

PS. I'm going to have to invest in a brewery to meet my 'Thanks' commitments

Hi Alex.
We did have a good time.
Pity we lost out on that one.
There are a few pics of the San Diego boat on the blog.

the boat looks really good,and a lot easier to handle than bon accord.
dont worry about the slab reefed main its actually easier than in-mast furling for downwind sailing.
the eletronics look pretty new as well.
give me a buzz if you have queries once you get there

Thanks Alex, I will.
To be honest, that big main did concern me a bit so your thoughts on it are helpful.
On a boat that size I've always leaned towards a ketch.

I've got a few buddies in Charleston that would probably happily ride down to Edisto, pm the details and any specific questions you may have and I will see what they can find out.
