Like a lot of newbies, my wife and I are looking into the option of spending some of our (early?) retirement
years on a boat; likely beginning in the next 18 to 24 months. Although we have both sailed in our younger years we've been away from it for a while other than a charter
and helping with a recent blue-water delivery
Gonna have lots of questions, but the first hurdle will be to find a satisfactory boat given a) the ever shrinking $ Canadian and b) our need to climb the steeper portion of the 'find/highgrade/survey/purchase a boat' learning
curve; we haven't been through the purchase
I don't expect much help from the Forum with the currency problem but I would appreciate any conventional thoughts on how to navigate the Survey
exercise. I don't want to waste too much of my time or that of prospective sellors.
