This just may just be the most addictive place in the whole intrawebs. I've read about everything from mattresses to countertops to crapping in a bucket. From $500 a month cruising to a non boater lady wanting to jump into the deep end of the boating
pool and load up on 2 huge boats so her family
would have enough room.
And thanks to all u heavy posters who contribute so much, zeehag, Rebel, saucy, NJD, Indy, GalaxyGirl, and on and on. Hopefully the sundowners will be on me someday.
Which brings me to me. 47, newly single
, professional pilot. I call Myrtle Beach home. Owned numerous small sailboats. Oday 23, 25, Macgreggor 26, Hobie 17 ect. Always harboured dreams of living on one and someday sailing away forever or so. So for the the last few months I've been researching, visiting boats, and internet shopping
. I've been successful. I actually found somebody that would take a stack of cash for an old boat that needs some work. Imagine my shock! It's an S2 9.2C. The surveror said it might float me home. Or not. But the hull
seems sound, rig ok, engine
runs in forward AND reverse! All for about 10k. Here she is..

So I'll be headed to Savannah to bring her home this week. I may even sail it outside from Hilton Head
. Alone. In the dark. And cold. As someone once said, if anything is gonna happen, it's gonna happen out there. Assuming I make it, I'll be docked at Osprey Marina, initially. I have a condo in Myrtle that I intend to rent out by the week. Rented weeks I'll stay on boat. Vacant weeks, I can use condo. We'll see.
Now I have to come up with a name. "Midsummers Dream" "Spirit of Ecstasy" "Mach .01" "Airpower" "Titanic 2"....
So, between remodeling voyaging painting oiling and all, I'm sure I'll be on here alot. So hi to all and to all a good night.
