An upturn on the shopping trip
We got down to business today, heading to Anacortes to check out a Hunter 38 (with a serious leak around the mast) and a Hunter 40 which went to the top of the list. Nice size, well maintained, and good potential to fall within budget after some negotiation. We also looked at the Islander Freeport 41 on the hard. While it had great rooms and a big salon, we just couldn’t get over the teeny tiny bathrooms! I mean, you don’t expect much on a sailboat, but when it’s tight for someone my size to get into comfortably, it’s just plain tight! It was a great day. We're really starting to refine our list of needs/wants based on what we’ve seen on these boats.
