It may have been asked, but why are you selling her? Thanks again for your time and help!! cheers!!!
Thx. Basically we haven't been sailing her. My kids
are 9 & 11 and are heavy into sports and more interested in tubing and fishing
. Weekends are short. I started my own company 2.5 years ago and that doesn't allow me to take weeks off at a time.
We barely sailed it last year other than a 250 mile race/trip to Maine
and back that I did solo last year. Maybe 10 day sails
in 2019. 2020 has seen about 5 day sails
All my friends have center consoles and in order to participate in those activities with our kids
we needed a boat
. I bought a 17' Whaler this summer and totally refitted it including a new outboard
. I have spent more time on the water
on that Whaler than I have in 2 years on Siena.
I do truly love Siena and have poured my heart, soul and a ton of cash into getting it just the way I want it. Only to find that my family
is just not that into going 6 knots. This year there was no Figawi and not sure about 2021. Without that anchor
trip to get me motivated in May, I just can't justify the effort to get her ready.
And it's a shame honestly. It's a great boat
and it deserves a better steward than I can be. Had a hard time accepting that but that's my honest answer.
