Re: New Gal

There have been some great bargains in local papers and craigslist. Some people have no idea what they are selling. There is a great support organization of CD owners at CDSOA.com.

But I NEED to find an interest I'm 50 years old...lol. This is my bucket list. Never going to put in to sea...strictly fresh water. Want small keel boat, I think...I'll be sailing alone...so something I can manage. Ideas? Advice

Thanks

NOT as embryonic as you would THINK!!! Others routinely post here having casually "heard" the word sailing... And ask for help planning their first transoceanic passage....

Arrr Kansas??? (it helps ease the discomfort by saying it all piratey) Well... There's worse places... Like Corinth MS...

The Dory would be a GREAT boat to start on... as well as TONS of others... Little Hunters... Catalina's... They're everywhere.... You don't need to approach your 12k number... The same amount of fun can be had at a fraction of the price in that size....

Happy, she never really set a price range so we would just be guessing what that is. Also not sure why she would want or require a full keel like the Cape Dory's, but here is the closest decent listing I could find.
Needs some updated cushions though.
