    Just saw your ad for your lovely Sea Sprite 23 and was surprised to see it is located in Vero Beach. I’ve sailed my own Sea Sprite 23 based in a slip at the Vero Beach City Marina for a few years now but have not had the occasion to see R.O.S. on the horizon. I am kind of saddened to learn that she may soon be leaving the area. I do wish you good luck with the sale. If, in negotiating the sale, it becomes advantageous to you to separate the trailer out of the transaction, I would be most interested in purchasing it from you. My boat, “Bluegrass”, is presently hauled at Sebastian River Marina & Boatyard, way up high on the framework erected to maximize storage space, with launching scheduled for the week after we return to our winter home in Vero Beach on January 3rd. There is a good chance I’ll be keeping the boat for this season in a slip at Sebastian River Marina & Boatyard since I’ve come to realize that the area immediate to Vero Beach is very limiting and for the most part, with a 3′ draft, you spend much of your sailing tacking within the confines of the ICW channel and getting rolled by the 50′ sports fishing boat doing 25 knots heading north and south. The area adjacent to Sebastian seems a bit more conducive to sailing and even presents, weather permitting, a chance at some ocean sailing. I know Sebastian Inlet can be a challenge at times but some careful planning and a close eye on the weather and tide changes should make it reasonably safe to get in and out.
    Good luck with the sale,

    Dick Rath
