Screwed up the chance to buy a Nickels.  Could not find another.

Agreed to buy a Flying Scot.  We are both 66 years old and may be happier with less hiking.

Can always change my mind if this does not work out.

Thank you all.

Have settled on a price.  Now scheduling inspection and transfer on a Flying Scot.  

The Buccaneer was a close second because of its popularity where we will be sailing.  The Bucc requires more hiking and the crew's back is not reliable.

Experience.

Raced a lot on the local level in Kentucky and some in Newport, a legend in my own mind.

Crossed the Gulf with waves coming over the side of a 40 footer in the night.

I like to go here   http://www.keysailing.com/Rentals.html     and

rent catamarans.  The National Seashore is beautiful.   You can sail from Key Sailing down Santa Rosa Sound to a beach.  It is an easy walk to the Gulf.

Sick of long flights, long waits and  the fucking airlines.  Shorter flights to Pensacola or Mobile are much better.
