We pulled the trigger and made an offer on a Pearson 303 yesterday. We are now in the process of making arrangement to go down to her and “take-a-look” at what we have done. This will be a big departure from the “take everything with us” mode of sailing and into minimalist mode on the smallest cruising sv we have ever owned. What I said above is not exactly true. We do own and even more, and smaller, Little Yellow, a 16' foot American Fiberglass sweetheart of fun.
Cowabunga is her name and is a bit too frivolous for me and I would have preferred Cowasaki to reflect my old Z1R days. Perhaps, but that is pretty frivolous too. If we follow our path we should name her Inspiration III but a departure may be in order. So here is the Yachtworld picture.
