Getting my new boat.

I have put up the Nantucket for sale. Excellent boat, but don't want 2 right now.

He is "jumping ship" to a Cape Horn.

Yes, its true. The cape horn 24' will be mine.
Someday, when the kiddies come, I may downsize back to a Nantucket, but I am heading offshore.

No complaints or sour grapes about Whalers. The experience has been positive, and I will likely own another one in the future. If I don't get what I am looking for in price, I may keep her.

Love that Nantucket though. Not pressured to sell it, but don't want to neglect it either. Worst thing for a boat is to sit without somebody to love it...tear, tear, sniff,sniff...and she does deserve a good home.

Best of luck with the Cape Horn. I know your decision was not a hasty one. You've done your homework, you've test driven many boats, and you've chosen a proven blue water boat. Your Nantucket is a great boat but a smart captain knows that she is not the best match for your future fishing intentions. Call me when your ready to head out to the Canyon.

Thanks for the cudos. I ain't running right out to the continental shelf just yet...but soon. Plenty of stuff on the inshore (<60mi) humps, lumps, holes and wrecks to work with till the YFTs are in heavy in the Hudson.
