My lovely wife and I are already looking at boats on-line. We found some decent bargains. There are always inexpensive boats to buy that are expensive to fix. We try to avoid those. Even with that consideration, there are sailboats in pretty much sail away condition for small money.
Some were such bargains that we could put together the funds to pick them up right now. In fact, my lovely wife was tempted to have me make a few phone calls today. I think that might be jumping the gun a bit. We've only been back a week.
A lot of people want floating condos. After living in tents, a 19 foot sailboat, and a van, we don't need a huge apartment on the water. In fact,we found the Ranger 23 we owned to be quite roomy. With our background boats under 30 feet are just fine. A lot of people won't touch anything under 40 feet, so the smaller boat market has good selections.
I'm starting to think we are safer on the water than on the roads. It didn't help that one of my daughters and her family were just in a fender bender while on vacation. They are fine, but it's scary. Too many inattentive drivers out there. Their minds are on everything else but the road.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
-part red neck, part hippie but all country. Experimenting and enjoying the adventure of life.
