Good evening folks! I need some advice
. I am looking to purchase
a used sailboat but with soooo many options I need some advice
on where to start.
I have been powerboating for over 20 years on Lake simcoe and the great lakes
and plan to stay here for now but under sail. I have a wife, ten month old and a dog with likely another child coming in the next year. I'm thinking we should be in the 34-36 foot range thoughts?
I like to visit Georgian Bay and thus I think a shoal find keel
or at least a keel
under 5 ft is a must. I'd like air/heat, windless and three stateroom configuration if possible. I'd also like a walk through transom for ease of loading the kids/dog. I believe a single diesel
is the way to go for power.
I don't have a lot of experience sailing (I've sailed a bit in the keys) but my wife has a fair bit on day boats.
Any advice would be appreciated. I have a budget
Thanks in advance! If I'm missing anything or need to be more specific please let me know.
