Long time no post.
I'm looking for our next boat
, something in the mid 30's to max of 40'. Purpose is coastal cruising, hopefully head
way next fall. Two handed sailing, wife and I. Budget
Yesterday I saw a Morgan
383 that was well cared for, from what I've read it seems to be a good choice.
There is a CS36 (Canadian Sailcraft) I'm going to see today, again seems well suited for the job and has a good reputation.
Thoughts on these first two boats as they are at the top of my list?
Saw a Cal
39 that was also well cared for but needed the entire head/plumbing/holding redone. Other than that a nice boat
Years ago I owned an Islander Freeport
38, same as the 36 but with a bowsprit
. Great boat, only issue is most have a pathfinder diesel
and I don't care for those but it's not a deal breaker.
Any general thoughts on buying
in my parameters welcome and encouraged.
