2014 Sailing Season Planning

The planning for Sailtember 2014 has begun...

I am looking to purchase a 25-30 foot boat and then keep it in one of the harbors in my immediate area on a mooring.  I know the sailing grounds now and last years adventures certainly have me craving for more.  Now I have to find the right boat and the right harbor for her.  After that I need to get a dinghy.

Padanaram, Marion, and New Bedford are all in the running.

Below are my proposed boat names:
Passion I - My first choice for a boat I consider a keeper.  I would continue the series with future boats (II,III, etc)
My 'lil Playgirl (w matching Playboy logo) - Second choice, probably for a boat that I don't think will be around for long)

I am looking at a Pearson 30 that is located in Cape Cod.  I've been out there twice now and will have a professional marine surveyor visiting on Friday. I'm already spending money and I don't even own the boat yet! LOL

I am brainstorming on what this years personal challenge for Sailtember might be.  I want it to be more fun and less work than last year.  If I am going to do a 30 day cruise, I definitely need help with crew.  If I am going to live on the boat and daysail for 30 days straight, I think I'd like to find a boat slip so I'm at a dock.

Here are pics of the boat I am looking at:

It has LORAN! Just in case the cold war comes back and Marty McFly wants to navigate for me.
