Just in case you are thinking that I only have hot ladies sailing with me. We all enjoy Paul White when he comes out sailing with us.
  Summer is right around the corner.

 True we have to get through Thanksgiving, and Christmas, summer is really right around the corner. Every chance I get when the weather permits I will be down on my boats working to get them ready for next season.

 I have clients already in the process of searching for their own boats, right now, and while helping them in their decision making process I have a chance to see the boats that are out there. I have been seeing some great boats in the 28ft range between $10,000, and $20,000. Careful of those deals on Greg's list for cheap boats, there is no such thing.

 That 25ft Catalina selling for $5000, is going to cost you another $6000, to make it sea worthy, plus add another $6000 per year to own. Divide that cost by 10 which is the average number of days that you will get to use your boat. That is your true cost of owning a sailboat. 

 A better choice as you look for your new sailboat, would be to book a few trips with Captain Ed' Sailing through the summer, either as a package of sailing lessons or Instructional Hands on Family Sailing trips. Both great ways to see if sailing is for you, and your family as you search for a boat.

 fiveclasspackageCheck out the coupons below for some great deals at last years prices. If none of these deals suit your  needs give me a call and we can come up with something that does.

 If you happen to get that itch to buy a boat, remember there are many boats out there so don't jump without thinking. Also make sure that you have a proper survey done on the boat so that you know what you have.

 I can help you by helping you look for the right boat, doing a sea trial, finding a surveyor, as well as delivering and lessons on that boat.

 Stay warm, and have a safe, happy Thanksgiving
