Presents.....

HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone!


What did Santa bring your boat this year?Rochepoint was really good in 2010! She got a new 12 volt 22" hdtv/dvd TV, a teak & maple cutting board and a little wiring replacement. Admiral is really happy with the new items (so am I).


Hope everyone has great year of cruising in 2011, maybe we will even get to meet a few of you in our travels.

RE: Presents.....

Not yet....the typical contingencies are pending. Basically sea trial and survey are complete. The only contingency left is the results of the oil sample. I am not expecting any surprises there but who knows. So barring any surprises, it will likely be a done deal by the end of next week.... We will catch our breath financially and be boatless for awhile....and then get right back in. I have owned a "real boat"(ie non-trailerable) since 1994. I have committed to boatlessness many times. My longest period without a boat was approx 4 months. I have caved in in less time many times. Let's see how long we can take it. We have a hard time without a boat...

Congrats I hope,* Boatless is hard I usually cave fast, but resist, you will have tons of options

Selling before buying is smart!

John,
I will give you through the 2nd warm/nice/sunny weekend this spring!
Hope your deal goes through.

No boat presents under the tree for our trawler but no fear- a steady stream of $$$ is being thrown at her weekly it seems and she and I are spending lots of quality time together. *

RE: Presents.....

John, ready yourself for severe, and I mean severe, withdrawal symptoms. I've been through it 3 times. Are you planning to buy another soon, or trying to kid yourself your boating days are over....? The attempted (doomed to failure) cure differs depending.....

Every day a holliday , every meal a banquet,

The* 5 new 8x20 bronze opening ports came last Jan. from a shop in Caravelle FL.* and 3 more (matching!) came frim the Dania Flea Market last spring.

It pays to shop around.
