Are you thinking that you want to sell your boat online so that you can buy a larger boat? Have your friends and family outgrown the space on your boat? If you can, you should take advantage of the opportunity to get a bigger boat to give yourselves more room.
Imagine spending 21 days aboard the same ship as participants in the Transatlantic Race that starts next month will. And this is no pleasure cruise. You have to enjoy sailing to embark on such an adventure because there will be both fun and work involved.
Teenager Dirk Johnson is competing in the 3,000 nautical mile sailboat race and being with family goes along with the territory. Johnson is concerned about spending a great deal of time with the same people, especially since one of those people is his father, Dirk Johnson, Sr.
Dirk Johnson, Jr. will be the nipper on the crew, taking care of things like washing dishes, making repairs in the wee hours and packing the spinnakers.
The father in this pair has already participated in a Transatlantic Race, although in 2005 he was in a bigger boat–the 117-foot vessel he sailed in then offered much more space than the 48-foot vessel he and his son and other will be on this year. However, the father noted that this year’s boat is ‘small but powerful.’
