Daydream is our beautiful 1965 Columbia 26 sailboat. My family and I recently purchased her, mid-restoration, from an amazing Captain, Paul Esterle. After much hard work and a lot of traveling between Missouri, where we live, and Maryland, where Daydream is stored, she is almosr ready to set sail.
I am currently 9 months away from graduating with a BS in Environmental Science. Our dream is to sail along the Atlanic Coast, and beyond, in order to further study the environment first hand and to provide assistance where needed. However, due to a financial set back, the funds available for Daydream have become quite limited. After some intense calculating and major budget cuts we have determine that $2500 would have us sailing away.
Any help you are able to provide would be greatly appreciated. We also plan to document our adventures to share with anyone who is interested. Thank you again for taking the time to help us acheive our dream.
