I know we all have heard it before and seen many posts but I'll put mine out there!
I am looking for a good starter boat
. A simple single hull sloop
, 30 footer?(give or take), boat
that can be single
handed but have enough room for two. 6ft headroom
and a diesel engine
. A full keel
with about 4ft(+-) draft
. Tankage that would work
for cruising. One that would not cost a fortune to buy or to fix up.
That is close to what I am looking for but can adjust. Anyone know of a boat that might fit what I am looking for? I am mainly looking for a clean, sturdy, solid basic boat that is in good repair and is forgiving and sails
well for coastal cruising. Maybe go to the Bahamas
and the Abacos. The above is what I really want but willing to compromise. I live in South Carolina. Are there any prospects close to me?
