    Smaller Bareboat Charter?

    Hi all, exiting lurk mode to see what intel I can gather. The wife and I want to go charter something smaller someplace warm in march. We don't need a new 40 footer for 4k a week. We're old boat people and are OK with all that entails. Looking for a something in the 30 foot range and more...

    Out with old, in with the Ultra 30 (maybe)

    Thinking about pulling the trigger on replacing my 38 year old Cal T/2 with a Nonsuch Ultra 30 (shoal draft). The T/2 is a lot of fun with buddies out beer can racing, but it's not the greatest family boat. The Nonsuch is relatively huge below, has an obviously simple sail plan, and has all...

    Great Deal! - 32' Columbia $100 Wow - can't believe he has the guts to want to -charge- someone for this (especially since it's obviously under salvage laws even if you did decide for some crazy reason you wanted it)

    Anybody near LKN with mast climbing gear/experience?

    Be happy to rent you and your expertise. I have two screws loose on my sail track and a bulb to replace. Don't feel like giving All Seasons $$$ to do it when I could learn how to do it myself.
