Jim and Lisa Favors travelled all over the US, Canada and the Bahamas in a R27 and R29; using it as a motorhome between launch sites. They’ve had a blast and an envious time.
The folks JDCave mentioned, with the 26 Commander, had the right idea and a good west coast boat to do it with. Dump it in the north coast, cruise the summer and take it back home, to another year round boating haven.
Same with RCook
who mastered the trailering drill.
It’s the geography and logistics that I have a hard time with on a commuting basis as is indicated here;
Quote…would like to have the option of putting it in the water at different locations along the coast.”
2-3 days, up and down over the Rockies, $700 ferries, limited summertime ramp and parking space. Schedule and miss a lift date and get put back a month, out of spite.
Splash it in May, moor it, Westjet it and take it home in Sept.
As for other boats, NT26 and Aspen C90 are also options.
The good news is, he’s got three years to sort it all out.
BTW, no boat loan write offs in Canada.
