Naomi on Medusa

19 February 2012
Go small, go now, is what they say, and Naomi and her Columbia 23 "Medusa" are proof it works. She bought this boat for 2 grand in California, hauled it to the Sea of Cortez, and then sold the trailer for $600. She's probably invested 2 and a half more boat bucks in cruising gear. Her only regret was not having an autohelm of some kind - but bringing on crew like Ian here make the passages from one surf town to the next go by that much easier. She's out there doing it - so what's stopping you? Our 36-footer felt huge and yachtlike next door - but on the other hand - while I was tearing apart MY autohelm, Medusa sailed off her hook, past us, and around the bay during the afternoon thermals. Then they rowed ashore to play volley on the beach with the locals. Good life out here.
