Thanks for all the replies guys, I have decided to go the route
a larger boat and learning
, outfitting and fixing one boat.
We climbed on a few more expensive boats, the fit, finish and general quality of boats from 50k-150k did not impress me at all. I much prefer buying
something sub 50k and dropping another 50-100k into it at a quality level I want. Now having said that, my brother has offered his services so that helps the decision a bunch. Needless to say climbing on a bunch of boats helped make the decision, maybe I am picky, but such as life.
We are currently getting a boat surveyed, if all goes well we will posting
what we get. Financing
etc is all good to go, just the survey
needs to be done.
I will continuing my plans to do lessons in the fall, or whenever I can remotely or in person. I also apologize for my delayed response I was getting laser eye surgery done in Vancouver
so being online and replying wasnt high on the list.
Again I did seriously consider all advice
and opinions and assumed they were given from a position of logic and experience. They were not flippantly ignored.
