Sorry about the confusion.
Yes, my boat is at the Anchor Marina in N Myrtle Beach. I bought it last Nov., but I just retired this Sept.1.
I had looked for quite a while for a boat with the configuration that I wanted (needed), and when I finally found one, I “pulled the trigger” knowing that I would not get to use her for quite a while. Even though you hear folks say that there are tons of boats out there on the market, when you identify what you have to have (as opposed as to what you would like to have), the list of available vessels becomes quite limited.
I still check the listings on YW occasionally, just out of curiosity, to see what I might bought instead, and there really hasn’t been anything that I’ve seen that makes me sorry I bought when I did.
I will probably keep her at the Barefoot Marina (the manager is a friend of a friend) for a month or so and then head south. I had planned on stopping at Charleston, Savannah, St. Augustine, and then on to South Fla before heading across to the Bahamas for the rest of the winter. From what I’ve read here on the forum, it sounds like there are lots of other worthwhile places to check out along the way to S Fla.
I will take her up the AICW to NJ (possibly New England) for the 2013 summer, and then back down to the Caribbean where I will be participating in a reef research program (Project Aware).
This retirement thing could be quite a challenge (not). KJ
