After three years ashore, living in an apartment, the itch to sail overwhelmed fingernails and medication. Money or the lack thereof was an issue so I set a budget of one thousand dollars with the idea that I could find a Sunfish, Laser, or similar small dinghy sailboat.
As my thoughts developed, I thought hey - I've always wanted to play with a catamaran. Could I find a cat for $1000?
I began the quest on Craigslist.
Now you may wonder why I was so darn anxious to return to sailing. Here's an abbreviated history of the past twenty some years.
In December 1986, I purchased my second sailboat in Annapolis, MD. Sun Po, a Pearson 35, became my home until late 2005 when I listed her with a Honolulu broker and flew back to the mainland.
