We'll let er slide this time partner. 😄

Boat really is as good as we thought. NO major issues. Only 2 1/2 columns of very minor issues on surveyors notes. I think this is the one!

Yes folks. Give me a little bit to collect my thoughts. We're back poolside now decompressing from the day's activities. A lot of firsts today: driving a boat on the ICW, driving a boat on open ocean, hemorraging money for survey and haul out. What a day. What a glorious day!

This is fun! And, I'm not spending a dime!

Another miracle brought about by a man of the cloth!!

George - If she's the correct one so be it... just make damn sure she is.

You doing motor, transmission, and generator oil tests? They help a lot when purchasing used... in that... if they come back all with good results the word whoopee comes to mind - not so good results, then that creates great bargaining chip for price reduction.

Play it as you see it, my friend.

Happy Boat-Buyen Daze! - Art


Every Boat Dollar ($1000) you save at purchase is a boat dollar to help with other boat expenses... costs such as docking, fuel, furniture improvements, etc... all soon to arrive and that keep-on-going.

Where to start? 9AM Thurs morning was the appointed time for us to meet; me, Betty Jo, the broker, the owner, and the surveyor.

We rolled up at 20 min till. Boat is open, all covers are off, cushions in place, coffee on stove, surveyor in the bilge. Seems I'm never on time for anything!

At 940 the owner is backing out of the slip. By 10:15 we are down the ICW and into the open waters of the Atlantic. The owner gave me the wheel as soon as we had cleared the dock letting me drive the whole way. I was giddy as a school girl and I am not sure but I think my pants began to budge out in the front just a little! The WX was perfect; light winds, seas 2 to 3 ft.

We ran 7 to 8 knots just going down the coast until the surveyor caught up with us on the flybridge. "Open her up all the way". She dug in and those Cat diesels didn't miss a beat. She blew some smoke for about 5 min and then no more. The owners eyes were wide. "I never had her up this high", he said. 12 knots was the top end which is just about where she should have been for a wet weight of 18.5 tons of vessel. We kept her there while surveyor went below to check engine and transmission temps.Click image for larger version

Friar / Captain George and Admiral Betty Joe

This is more fun than being a 13 yr old at confession with nothing but good things to tell the priest!

You and Betty Jo are obviously having the time of your lives on this great boat-choice adventure.

Things are sounding good...Can't wait to hear more... sail on brother George - sail on!

Pictures dude (and dudess) - Please, please send us pictures as your event unfolds.

Cheers! - Art
