Juanita joins the Family!

Posted by on May 17, 2016

Since we have decided to sell Eeyore (the Montego 20 that we keep at Sarasota Sailing Squadron), we’ve had a logistical problem. We want to upgrade to a little larger boat, especially for when the kids are with us sailing. The Balboa 24 fits that bill – but it’s in Missouri. Worse, it’s on a very nice painted steel trailer, that I REALLY don’t want to introduce to salt water. So, we were facing the prospect of finding a galvanized trailer for the Balboa, and hauling it to Florida.

Along came Juanita!

Juanita is a 1978 San Juan 23, on a nice I-beam dual axle galvanized trailer. She showed up on Craigslist at a price we couldn’t refuse. Best of all – she’s ALREADY at the SSS!

More pictures, etc… to come. We are excited!
