Looking for the Right Boat
My wife and I are new to this site, although we aren't new to boats. My wife was a NOAA Corp Officer, retired, and had command on one of their ships. I have sailed small boats all over the ocean, over 250,000 miles, many of those doing deliver's in the Pacific. I am semi-retired but still work part time as a Ship Master sailing in the Western Pacific.
My wife and I are looking for a comfortable boat, in the 28-35 ft. range for cruising. I like the idea of a trailer-able boat, so we can keep it dry stored when not in use. I do want a boat that is comfortable to sleep on, has a useable head for my wife, and a reasonable galley. We do like the Sundowner 30, although we have heard that the headroom is a challenge for people over 6 ft, as both my wife and I.
One cruise that I have always wanted to make is the Great Loop, as well as doing some more cruising in the Pacific Northwest as far north as Alaska. I know the right boat is out there at the right price. If anyone has a suggestion,, please feel free to PM me, I would like to know your thoughts.
I enjoy reading the new post daily and looking at the classified ad.
