Maybe Too Soon?

Hello everyone and Happy Holidays, I'm new to the forum and enjoying all your post. I have owned 2 sailboats, 87' Oday 240, and 79 Irwin 28, Enjoyed them both. I am currently contractor overseas and will be done in 14 months (feb 2013) and will have cash in hand for my "new sailboat" The wife and i really like the 35.5-41 Hunter series, and know most of the pro's and cons. Will just see what i can get in Florida for the 35K i will have to spend. So most everyday i search CL, and other websites and see all these awsume deals and i sure hope they continue for the next 14 months, if I can't find good deal in 14 months i will surely cry Well everyone enjoy the holidays and i will continue to enjoy reading all the post out there!

Dont mean to be the "Harbinger(sp?) of sorrow" but by that time if things keep going like they have been all the boats will be occupied by the homeless...DVC

Saylor 240,
Welcome aboard! Since you and your wife have the hard part of determining what series boat you want..i.e.... the Hunter 355-41 series might be a good idea to comparsion shop and buy the boat a state or two away if the pricing is better such as same budget & model but getting a 4 yr newer boat. I just started boat shopping just a month ago but found pretty sizeable difference in price between Florida (Jacksonville & Marathon) versus Houston/Kemah/Galveston Texas area on our newly purchased used Hunter. Best wishes on your quest!
John & Carol

Re: Maybe Too Soon?

But the admiral says...no she wants to buy close to home!...so i have 15 months to change her mind lol...and 15 months to dream....Bright side is ...if i keep reading all the forum for 15 months i should be expert..lol
