Hello all. Well a little update about everything.... I am under 30 days of coming home to the states. I see the liveaboard
is still available, I'm not quite sure if that's a good thing or bad, hmmm. Anyhoo, I talked to the broker about it on the phone
and I asked him the reason for the sale
, he told me a doctor owns it, he bought a newer vessel and this one needs to go! He told me that it just needed regular maintenance
, and that it's really nice blah blah blah... The missus and I talked it over and mulled everything over about living aboard
and all and we thought it best to regroup and wait til I get back to look at all of our options....
One idea I came up with, would be get it and use it as a "summer home" what do you all think about that? Anyhoo, there's lots of options here.
I know and understand there are variables to this question, but I'm asking for a good educated guess here. If I were to "cruise" this liveaboard
from St Petersburg, Fl to Morehead City
, NC a friend of mine predicts less than two fuel tanks
full to get her home. I said closer to four.
Here's the numbers... 41' v hull
, twin 7.4 Litres, Gas engines, pushing roughly 14,000 lbs., fuel
capacity is 400 gallons, cruising at around 17 or less knots. St Petersburg is on the West Coast
, around 270 miles by car to Miami
So, any guesses? I'm just curious.... Thanks in advance everyone...
