Re: Any ideas the make of this boat

Research the HIN # is the best advice here. My comment is simple: unless I am missing something huge, pay nothing. If the owner is a friend, you will be doing him a favor by removing it. Good luck

My opinion - if the original cable is USA made and so is the new one, expect the same length of service. BUT if the new cable is an Asian import expect HALF the original lifespan. Now if the original...

Re: First Time Bareboat Charter. Where would you recommend?

Nothing against the USVI, but donít start your week here, unless your destination is the SVI off the east coast of PR. Too many reasons to start your cruise from Tortola BVI to list here.

Re: Why do you guys like monohulls so much?

Lots of reasons as previously noted. Now my 2 cents.

A friend of mine has sailboat brokerage locations in 3 states around the GOM. Selling new/used, big/small and mono/multi for decades.
