Well, I was right! I took my wife to view a 2000 Beneteau Oceanis
311, and she loved it. I must admit, there is a lot to like. It was very clean, the engine
was very quiet, and it was practically turnkey (or at least, appeared to be so).
So we made an offer which was accepted.
It would not be my first choice for extended cruising
, and obviously it is not really suited for offshore
, but for out coastal cruising needs it is a good match for us.
And the best part?
My wife is enthusiastic and engaged, which is pretty much the most important part of this equation.
But winter is coming. And in Norway
, that MEANS something! Roll on next year and Spring!
