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.
