    I sail out of DYC and live in middle sackville. Going to try racing next year on mondays but wednesdays are a little too intense for me.

    We are looking for a deckhand/stew that can be available the entire season that is offered in our Crew Wanted post.

    Hi Jon,

    Thank for nice and encouraging message I'd like to start with good news..... We're in the process of buying a well equipped Gulfstar 43 CC (Real sailboat one... Not the MS) Looks like Our total cost (after emergency upgrades etc) will be around 35K (usd) Hoping to get her surveyed and finalize the deal in a month.

    I've found that H38 on craigslist. Owner had to sell her due to health reasons.... She had solid hull and deck, good diesel, wiring, plumbing seemed to be upgraded. When I contacted the seller and had the news that she's been sold only a day before I called.

    I believe the secret is patience and persistence...... In total, I've spent 14 months to find the right and budget friendly boat. I've had a few near misses like a fully equipped - theoretically ready to go- Corbin 38 for $30K.... Did not give up and I feel like we're getting close to launch our own website nomorelandlubbing dot com

    Hi John,
    I passed your website along to Howard last week. I plan to call him over the weekend and I will pass your comments and contact info along to him. He has quite a collection of useful info on Hughes Boatworks and some of the original engineering drawing etc. My first sailboat was a Hughes 22 in the 70s then a Mirage 27 in the 80s now I am playing with a Morgan OI 37. In any case I will see what I can do to connect you.

    When I get back to Canada I will let him know. He is a very private individual but he has a ton of info and stuff that he has shared. Anything in particular you need?
    In the meantime I will pass your site address along to Howard.
    Good Luck!
