Re: Re: Re: good as a live aboard boat???

I lived aboard my Columbia 26 MKII for over ten years from 1983 to 1994 and found her the perfect bachelor pad. I sailed her up and down the California coast from Ventura to San Diego numerous times, practically commuted to Catalina Island staying sometimes a week at a time, fishing , snorkeling, hiking, and weekend dancing with all you lovely ladies. In 1993 I solo sailed her down the Baja coast and spent a year cruising Mexico on $416 a month, including much Pacifico and great food. I could do it because of the simplicity of the vessel, and that she never saw the inside of a marina, she and I lived on the hook. I made many modifications, some of which are listed in Sail Net. These days I live more comfortable aboard a Ranger 29, much more complicated with diesel engine and bigger rigging. It is for sale because I intend to buy another Columbia MkII and hopefull return to Mexico. George

I hate to be a dumb bunny, but what is "Sail Net" that is referenced in your posting? Thanks.
