    Default Need a New Boat

    Well, I'm not going to chop up Dura Mater in order to sail in our offshore races, but I don't like being left behind, either. So, help me find a Bristol 24 or a Cape Dory 25 and you may all stay ahead of me for awhile yet.

    Of course I'm looking there. But sometimes there's a perfect boat just down the dock from your boat ... hmmmm, you say to yourself, don't I know somebody who was looking for that kind of boat ... ? Oh yeah ...

    'Twas read between the lines.

    The Bristol is in your back yard but that Cape Dory with inboard looks pretty sweet. I think there's a CD 25 at Marina Village in Alameda if you wanted a preview. Any SSS'ers at Gate 8 or Gate 9 remember seeing it?

    Still looking. Maybe a Cal 25 or a Pearson Ariel? I'll look at anything short and solid with a high ballast/displacement ratio. Cape Dory is a bit more than I'm willing to pay. I'll be spending to improve any older boat, so I'd rather have the money for stouter rigging, a windvane and tiller pilot.
