Beginning the serious consideration and search for my boat.

I am a prairie boy that served in the Royal Canadian Navy reserve from 1982 - 1996, developing a great love for boats and water.

Now living in Ottawa, I have access ... and the dream is growing.

My loose plan is to acquire a used, functioning liveaboard looper (Grand Banks 36 or the like with sound hull and engine). Over the next three or four years I will ply the Thousand Islands, re-learning my navigation and seamanship skills as well as acquiring new skills (not to mention fixing/restoration work).

Then... the loop.

Of course, the best laid plans of mice and men... So, one step at a time. Presently thinking about acquiring a boat in spring and getting it located to the Kingston, ON area.

Broker recommendations are welcome.

I look forward to time spent in this forum.

Welcome aboard! Wish you best luck in your quest for your perfect boat. You will have plenty of wonderful place to cruise where you are.
