pirate Florida Dreamer Saying 'Hi'

Wanted to introduce myself.

Living in South Florida.

Multi-hull desires.

Landlubber still.

sick of the constant rain over the last week!

the name 'wacko' was just a name I received in college after I won a bet in a sushi place. I ate an entire golf ball size wad of wasabi after 4 beers. 15 minutes later, while my stomach was sizzling I promptly leaned over into the walkway and puked everything up. We never went back to that restaurant again. LOL.

I'm ready to purchase my Catamaran, HOWEVER, I can't seem to find the 'perfect' design yet. looking 36-40ft. be able to sail singlehanded. liveaboard. and keep cost at under $300-400k TOTAL - new boat only.

Welcome, wacko. You'll fit right in here. Try posting your cat questions in our Multihull subforum. You'll get more action that way. You could also try the Google search to mine the numerous catamaran threads in our archives (small "Search" pull-down menu up top, right). Best of luck in finding your boat.

Wasabi can be a wee bit dangerous. Welcome, and take a look at the CSK for sale. An oldie, but a goodie, and lots of money left over for cruising......i2f
SAILING is not always a slick magazine cover!
BORROWED..No single one of is as smart as all of us!
