Fishing from a sailboat

Optimistically, I am about five years away from affording the costs of owning and operating a boat. Gas might be $20 a gallon by then if these futures markets are not regulated. But sailboats seem to be significantly cheaper per foot than a Grady or a Parker and if this is the case I could probably afford one as soon as next year.

I have been thinking about doing this for years! I really wouldn't want to fish from the sailboat though, even in deep water I would rather fish from the kayak. However, I have always thought a sailboat would be the perfect boat to transport the kayak to different fishing locations, especially out front. You wouldn't have to worry about risky surf launches and landings, getting dumped and losing all your equipment. Also the sailboat would be a great place to rest and take a nap after you are done fishing. I'm surprised I haven't seen anyone doing this yet. Probably because most people who own sailboats are a bunch of jerks who don't fish.
