Re: I Have Been a Member for 8-9 Years Looking for a Sailboat

On a cruise to SW Florida in Pine Island Sound passed by one of these in winter 2013-14. A friend of mine said he thought it belonged to Greta Van Susteren of Fox News. It was a beautiful boat and looked immaculate as we passed by. Looks like a boat with constant maintenance with all the wood, but beautiful craftsmanship.

OK, I think I know who it is not. Who is is it, including evidence and source? If you like, please PM me since I really do not know despite the obvious name cross-over. If it is claimed to be the President of the United States, where on earth would it be possible to reliably find out! No question mark because the prior sentence was not a question, and both of our posts are too darn close to political unless there is a boat related target such as Trumpy.

Re: I Have Been a Member for 8-9 Years Looking for a Sailboat

As i just got home from a very long day of helping an older lady with an insulation problem in her older house where she has been leaky heat out side her house in 14 degress weather .. long day but well worth it .

So i arrived home to a very nice long list of questions and asnwers so i have to begin somewhere so i will start somehwere in the middle



So ,my first answer is .i have a very dry sense of humour as my father was born just outside of liverpool,England and he taught me well..i was not aware you were from oz.

#2

i have been looking for a boat for a boat ,not to buy ,just yet ,but trying to decide which boat might suit me best.i just this past month spent 1.4 miilion dollars starting a new business. it will be about 6-10 months before i actualy buy .in the mean timee i am learning which boat might suit my needs best ,when i finally get around to really laying down the cash.



#3

Until a few weeks ago i had my heart set on a formosa 50 as long as it had a smiley face ..some don't you know.

in the last two weeks i came to understand that in many cases i can buy a lovely Trumpy for about the same price as a well found formaos 50 [ about $175,000] but the upkeep on the Trumphy will be considerably more than a plastic boat. I doubt there would be many other boats pulling into a big marina in Miami or Tortola [ my normal hangout} that would might shine better than a 65-70 foot Trumphy in great condition.



#4 Until now,the only thing i have sailed is a sailboat ,i prefer monohulls in the 47-54 foot range so i can bring many friends whenever possible



Cheers to everyone who can contribute .i am still in search for the ulimate boat .It is starting to look that it could be a big old power yacht ..but nothing is etched in stone until i place the cash on the table

love to hear from more of you

One of the beauties of not being a wise guy is I am dumb enough to ask, mostly because I think there is no even a remote possibility the obvious answer is the right one.

Note to the mods.This is my last off topic post on this one. I promise.

Some Trumpy info on this forum:

Trumpy Yacht | YachtForums: We Know Big Boats!

There is a Trumpy historian there with seemingly endless knowledge of them.
