I'm 95% convinced to purchase a Getaway but this is a sanity check to make sure I'm not doing something completely boneheaded.
I'm looking for something to race beer cans with but I'm also looking for something to sail with my wife and two young children (aged 4 and 6). My kids will be continuing to learn to sail this boat so it has to be pretty rugged.
I've been racing "big boats" for the last couple of years and we're working towards ditching everything and living aboard a big cat in the next 3-5 years while the kids still want to hang out with us
In the meantime we want something to sail and most importantly have fun.
I started teaching the kids to sail on a C&C Shark so we're used to being cozy so I'm not too worried about space however the Getaway seems more then spacious. I was originally looking at a Wave (with Hooter package
) but dismissed due to load and space capacity. I briefly toyed with 2 waves but my wife shot that down pretty quick.
So is the Getaway the right boat for me?
Also beyond wings, Harken blocks and replacing the tiller (yeah I devoured the archives) anything else I need/should consider?
thanks a bunch
