The very first donation I received in my Go Fund Me campaign was a boat!!!
It’s an O’Day Mariner 2+2. It’s 19 feet long with a small cabin. Definitely a “Minimalist” cruiser. In rummaging around online avoiding doing something important I found this quote at http://sailingsimplicity.com
“A 14-foot mini-cruiser is minimalist. A 19ft is comfortable, and anything much larger than a 25 borders on ostentatious.”
The two boats I’ve owned, then, fall into the “comfortable” and “bordering on ostentations.” My beloved and greatly missed Nancy Dawson measured 26 feet long.
As great a little boat as the Kaiser 26 is, with its full keel drawing 4 feet it wouldn’t be suitable for the COPD Awareness Cruise.
