What Do Sailors Do When They Can't Sail?

September 2011.  What do sailors do when they can’t sail?  They dream about sailing. Storms were projected for later this afternoon and all day Sunday, so we jumped in the car and headed to Waukegan, IL to look at a Pacific Seacraft Dana that is for sale.  We have no intention of buying right now, and told the salesman that, but even so he was willing to take us out so we could have a first hand look at one of the boats on our dream list.  It didn’t disappoint.  All pictures show a very roomy cabin for a 24 footer.  But what is roomy for someone who is 5’8 is way different for someone who is 6’3.  Much to our surprise, Mike was able to stand in the cabin without too much trouble!!!! Unheard of for him.  We checked in all the nooks and crannies, of which there were several, and pictured ourselves out on the open water. 

Start looking at potential boats - check.  One more baby step off of our to do list.
