Thanks all. Larry, there were days during this that I weakened considerably. After missing our first two transport dates due to deficiencies in our preparedness in documentation and cradle and lifting logistics in April in May, I nearly abandoned ship and re-listed her there. It was pretty unsettling to own a boat now registered in no country, sitting in a foreign country where I seemingly could control none of the variables myself. Thanks to a couple of more seasoned and rational seamen, I was talked off of that cliff. Thanks to TF's own DaddyO for a gracious counseling session that probably saved the day and my sanity on one of those days. Another reason this list is such a resource.

Still a ways to go but looking promising at the moment.
Very well done.

And yes, many on this forum have talked me off the ledge numerous times.

Craig took the words right out of my mouth...you have great taste in boats, Bill. I've said before that IMO, the Klee Wyck is one of the best looking boats here on TF. It might have been knocked down a peg now with the arrival of Libra.

ROFL!! You guys crack me up. Nothing like a bidding war on a boat that's not for sale.

Good luck with the transport. I'm sure you're anxious for the delivery to be completed. Are you thinking of a name change for the new boat? Have you considered Big Cheese?

A lot easier to bid that way, you don't have to put your money where your mouth is.

Exactly!

Surely everyone knows I'm just jacking around, right ?

I would certainly think so. Still it's humorous since a couple of you had similar comments.

Reminds me of a shirt my father had and his secretary was always trying to buy it from him. Just silly showing she liked it. Well, he wore it long past it's useful life and then as a fishing shirt, in condition I wouldn't have dare been seen in it. So one day on his way to go fishing he has it on and she starts as always. He asks how much she'll pay for it, she says something like a dollar or two, and he takes it off and hands it to her. Now she's sitting there with an old worn out shirt that you know the moment she gets home will hit the trash.

Thanks Al, I haven't thought about names for a bit as I have been distracted with logistics on this boat and my busy non boat life. Early in the shopping process I had a name in mind that was certainly cheese related. The reason we spend so much time up North is, as you must know, the cheese project. We make a family of cheese that is all traditional Italian and the flagship is 'Fior di latte' which is a cultured whole cow's milk mozzarella. Fior di latte translated from Italian is 'blossom of milk' or 'flower of milk'. In many ways, the fact that I own this boat is a 'blossom' of the milk business so it seems appropriate. I will admit that when looking at the exterior of this boat, 'flower' does not come to mind.
My favorite cheese at the moment is a classic northern Italian origin hard and well aged cheese called Fontina. We make a damned good one. Maybe that will do it.....hard and well aged is a better descriptor of this vessel, no? Hailing port could be Ferndale, WA which is where the cheese plant is just minutes from either Squalicum Harbor in Bellingham, WA or from Blaine Harbor in Blaine, WA.

We shall see.

If ever in the neighborhood I shall invite myself over for a tasting. The rest of y'all can keep up the bidding war on the boats

You have a standing offer for cheese AND a boat ride anytime. (I like wheat beer)

The long way home

Sounds like a plan. May be a few months though. Our next trip to Washington will only take us as far as the south sound. (You have good taste in beer too )

Yeah, I remember when I used to take Cardude's comments with a grain of salt. Then on a run through Texas, I figured I'd stop at his car lot and see his operation. I figured it would be something like the Used Cars Movie, you know, a dusty old lot like in the first photo. Then I saw it (second photo).

I owe it all to this book!
