Rebecca had boat-hunted for a while, and her patience finally paid off. Dawn Treader was discovered sitting on a pretty darned good-looking trailer, sported
a decent suit of sails, and came with a six-horsepower motor that, with a little T.L.C., might just keep running for a bit. The goal was met: She'd found a boat that
wouldn't require hiring a hauler at either end of the season, could be easily stored and cheaply maintained, and all at a price under $900. Better yet, in the end, she and her friend, Joel, went halves.
