Hello everyone from Vancouver
I have a very limited experience, sailed once for a race
in Victoria last year and liked it a lot.
Now that i'm living right between coal harbour and false creek it became obvious that I need a boat
I saw a few adds on craigslist and fb that fits my buying budget
(>5000$) for a cabin
under 26ft, late 70s: US-25, O'Day 25, Santana 25.
I plan on getting the checklist online for the particular model and inspect it myself, really I have no contacts whatsoever yet with boaters... - is it a big red flag or doable if done with care and preparation ?
Second and it seems the more painful point, what to do once I buy the boat! I'm seeing a lot of anchor
boats on false creek but it seems you're only allowed for 14/30 days in summer time, and locals marina have 10 yr wait list. Apart from getting buying a boat
with a slip, with no car for a trailer
, what would be your options?
Do you know about any yatch club that would allow moorage/anchoring for a small boat
Any advise here is really appreciated.
See you on the water
