RE: The Perfect "Loop" Boat

There is no perfect boat for all situations.* Get a boat.* Do the Loop.* There are many boats out there that qualify to do the Loop comfortably.* Time is running out.* I know too many people that waited for everything to be perfect to leave.* They never did, and never will.* Time ran out.

The Perfect "Loop" Boat

I always have to snicker at brokers that pitch their boats as "ready to loop now" or "equipped to loop" or "setup to loop" or even "just did the loop". Really?!?!? How, specifically, to you get a boat ready to loop before a sale? It's such a personal thing, meaning the preparation and rigging for a loop trip (or so it seems to me), that someone pitching a boat as "loop ready" is full of it. No different than saying "turn key". "Here, buy this car, it's equipped to drive to Disneyworld."

Tom-

P.S. I liked the video, but it was boring. No real shot of the people or the boat. Just horizon and a few sights from the flybridge.
