met a guy...





ok, hang long enuf?



My Boat Works - Home

He and i spoke for about an hour today and he is going to pick out a few 'prime' candidates for me to look at...

He indicated that I should be looking at 35'+ boats with my cash on hand and monthly income...

he stated that bigger is better as far as ease of sailing.. which seem 'counter intuitive'???

he seems to be quite 'helpful'... hmmm... my instinct says caution....

don't despair, I just did a 10 second search for boats I know are inexpensive, in florida, and suited for a single guy to live aboard quite comfortably. Our friends have one and they sail quite well also!!

If you go through a broker you have to pay them commission.Some of them are very unscrupulous.If you use one,ask them for references.If they get dodgy about ref's. ,it is better to move on.Just sayin'.

i contacted them... and would love to go back to hawaii... they dont do liveaboards at all there... it sucks... if i were a little more proficient sailor i would do it... in a heart bit...

as for the broker, he has not said anything about money.. and until such time, I will assume there isnt or he gets it from someone else... I will walk away from anything 'unreasonble', but will be glad to reward and compensate him fairly for his efforts...

I will also be getting boat surveys and all that.. nothing will change except i hope to get 'cursory' reviews and suggestions for boats to minimize my wasted time driving all over and only seeing one boat at a time...

1977 US Yachts 30' Sailboat

Ok, here is the deal..

I either get this boat, or I give up and move to Florida and get a boat there... (or on the way there, in TX or LA or somewhere)


This boat looked nice and clean.. the owner had the boat in his family for a long ass time..

no smells, no rot... it needs some stuff... rigging will need to be changed soon... but that is ok as i want to kinda adjust it for me, and put in some organizers and get the lines off the deck...

The owners are very motivated... he threw out a low LOW number.. i didnt even have to negotiate and he cut his price......

Its a crazy low price... I am so seriously tempted... but, it is still cold water california... it is still a week away to warm waters... and not sure i will ever be able to make it to the gulf side in this boat.......

should i just take the gamble and make the move... I really dont like california.. and i know the 'crap' thats here... and i dont know whats over there... and am not sure i will find a deal like this over there...

the price is sooo attractive...
