Hi All

Hi everyone Im new to yachting and looking at buying a live aboard.I havent done a lot of off shore sailing owned an old 45 ft carvel cray cutter which I bought it in Pt Lincoln and motored around to Coffins Bay. I had to oyster leases there and used it as a work base fo sorting etc,I have a Coxwain cert and a fishing back ground Ive mainly fished and sailed Spencers Gulf SA in the early days in and old 23 ft carvelI.Ive been looking at yachts 38ft up preferably GRP around 50g which I can learn to sail single handed with cruising in mind Costal and then reaching out.So if anyone sees anything worth while looking at please let me know.
Happy yachting all!
Greg.

Re: Hi All

Boat is a Moody 39 and I think he put in a new Yanmar motor ... Last I heard he had to return to SA to attend to some urgent business so was to put the yacht up for sale. They are a lovely family with good integrity ... we anchored alongside them in Prickly Bay

Re: Hi All

I just checked in the search section under Greg Debi Josh ... they came up which is why I knew they had a Moody 39
