Greythings and salivations!
Obligatory intro: I'm a professional writer and largely unpaid ocean activist. Been on the water
since I was a kid. First vessel was a Clipper Marine
26'. No clue why or how I'm still alive taking her offshore
Since then, there've been at least a few others in that size, and a couple multihulls, the largest being a 42' Wharram
that I was stupid enough to sell for a song when I was stupid enough to move inland.
I've held on to a piece of land, beautiful place up on a hill, with a huge view, water
and septic. Finally sold it earlier this year after renting
it for some time, when I realized there was no way I was going to want to retire to a place 1000 miles from the nearest saltwater. Unfortunately, I had to take paper on it in this economy, so... On here looking for a capable cruiser that someone is willing to take $500 a month or so on. She doesn't need to be bristol, just seaworthy
I'm after monohulls in excess of 28 feet, preferably in the 30-40 foot range. Fond of older heavy boats. Cheoy Lee
has always tugged at my heart strings...
Also of interest would be a multihull
of 31+ feet. Ideally I imagine a 35-42' tri or cat would be the best solution. Prefer warm waters, but willing to consider boats on the ocean further north, or abroad.
Meanwhile, I hope to learn some, maybe share some, and enjoy the company!
