New to the board... thought I'd introduce myself.
I am born and raised On Vancouver
Island. I have raced out of the RVYC on occasion mostly on larger boats, Cal20, Olsens, Expresses, etc. I grew up doing a few cruises on a C & C 32 but no more than for a week at a time. I have been a fishing
guide for the last 5 years between sooke- Tofino- and Haida Gwaii.
What I am looking for is some insight into taking a boat
from Victoria to Alaska
over 5 months in the summer of 2019. I will be graduating university this spring and preparing for LSATs in the fall of 2018. I would like to work
on a sailboat and get it in SHIP shape while I wait for the results.
I should have roughly 35K saved up to purchase
next fall. As well, I will have access to a ship yard that I can do work
at. With this in mind I am looking for recommendations for a solid boat, or type of boat that can do the journey within the price
Better yet, instead of the exact boat. I would be interested in finding out what features I should be looking for. I won't be sticking to only protected waters.
Sorry for errors, writing this on my phone
