I'm pondering a big decision. Selling Maybritt. Why - she is too big - at the risk of repeating earlier posts Alan Pape Cuttyhunk 47ft Ketch.
To try and be as objective as possible and whilst she may not be everybody's cup of tea she is a fantastic open water machine utterly unique and is as strong and seaworthy as they come...but she is more than I need. She needs to go to sea..in fact she has been prepared for a round the world trip. She is in excellent condition and about as low maintenace as you can get but.....with my job its beyond me personally and therefore expensive. The yard does everything to make sure she is tip top...and as much as I love her it would be a mistake to be overly sentimental.
I believe I have identified the ideal boat (for me that is) a Sam Morse LG Cutter 28ft. I am going to Korea on a lecture tour Sunday for a week and will ponder this...but I may ask for a recomendation as to where to list as only good homes need apply.
Any guidance, advice, thoughts, suggestions would be greatly welcomed to help me ponder this. I am going to take my time.
