I'm an old sailor, but new to the forums
. I raised my children
aboard a couple of boats in Alaskan waters, but the fall out resulting from a divorce forced me to give up my beloved Esprit. For the past decade I have lived ashore, yearning for the sea each and every day. Now, with my daughters grown, I am actively seeking the opportunity to return to life afloat. I am hoping to find a boat
suitable for living aboard
and cruising that I would be able to lease
to own. My financial situation does not allow the flat out purchase
of a boat
, but I would rather my $1200 plus currently being spent on rent go toward the financing
of my chosen lifestyle. I am looking for something 27' + in Puget Sound
. I currently live and work
in Olympia, WA, so something local would be easier on all parties concerned. I would continue to live aboard in Olympia until the vessel was paid off (though, of course, sailing the local area as time permitted).
I would appreciate hearing from anyone willing to work
with me. Thanks.
