I love boating. I have owned many boats and I imagine I always will. This vessel here is a 1981 – 41′ CHB and 44′ overall.  A great cruising vessel or live-a-board. A great size for economy and family. It is in Chula Vista (Near San Diego California) right now. 

My boat was located in Paulsbo, Washington and since I live in Southern California, I didn’t get to enjoy it as much as I would like.  It was my dream to bring it down to San Diego.  I left Washington at the end of April and was hoping for good weather, as I was bringing it down by myself.  The weather didn’t cooperate, and I experienced some interesting days, but I saw a lot of the beautiful coast.  There were times I was stuck a couple of weeks in one port or another, but I always learned new things and met new people.  I finally succeeded in reaching Chula Vista toward the end of August.  It was quite an experience and the boat handled beautifully the whole way.  Now it is someone else’s turn to have fun with her.  She is a tough little lady and with a little sanding and some paint will look good as new.  I am in the process of refurbishing her and as I complete my projects, the price will go up.  If you are looking for a bargain and are willing to do a little cosmetic work, buy her now.

I may want to eventually take it to Puerto Vallarta and keep it there. Much lower cost for slip fees plus not expensive to fly there. Nice people there and a lots of expatriates. Great fishing. I will use it like a condo on the water. The best of both worlds I think. So, we will see how it all plays out. I will write much more later. The vessel is for sale $73,500 (a great live-a-board).

Fun things:

Hey want to see underwater? Easy to make a bucket and see underwater. Take a whatever size plastic (preferably white) say about a 2 gal bucket. Get a clear plastic piece kind of thick. Cut a hole in the bottom of the bucket and leave a 1″ rim and cut the clear plastic to fit and use a plastic waterproof glue. Have fun exploring.

More articles coming soon. Send me cruising stories or whatever have you.
