greetings

hello everyone . i have recently set off on my first real voyage with my first "big" boat. i have owned numerous small craft for hunting, fishing, playing, etc but this 46ft is a whole new animal. my wife and i are able for the first time to walk away from our jobs for a year or so. we are blessed to have a great friend who is my boat and navigation mentor to lead us on this journey from Texas to Florida. so far i have to say because of this forum there have been members who have meet us every stop in Louisiana and treated us like royalty. some of the nicest folks ever. trips to walmart , feed extremely well , local advice etc.. i hope i can return the hospitality one day.

Greetings,
Welcome aboard. Sounds like you've met a lot of crazies. Wait until you meet someone "normal".

Enjoyed your visit last week-Hope the weather gets better. Did you flush the cooler on the generator again? I would do it again to make sure you got all the salt out. Just a reminder to keep up with all the maintenance on my next boat. I know, I know, I'm 3rd on the list.lol

Yeah, but Blue has a little sellers remorse.LOL Blue's Admiral needed more living area and refinements. The 4788 fills the bill. That Jarvis is very Salty but the Bayliner is very nice and I love the ergonomics of the bridge arrangement with the pilothouse access to the flybridge. BUT, I still like the lines of the Jarvis Newman better, and that huge rear deck (awesome). Both are wonderful boats. Traveling together must be a hoot. Hope the weather gets better soon, so ya'lll can get further East.

That is beating the odds! We too have good relations with PO of our boat. Run into him once n' a while in marine store or other location. Initially (during first couple years after purchase) he'd shy away, probably thinking oh shat there's the purchaser... then he learned we always have smiles on our faces regarding the Tolly he sold us. Long since when we run into eachother he comes right over and we exchange chat on things of interest. We do love our Tollycraft... he is a great PO to have in our boat's history!

I wish you many years of fine journeys.

Welcome aboard, rainman! Glad to hear you scored Blue's boat. No doubt it's in great shape.

Is it true that he sold it with an anchor-to-swimstep 10 year unlimited warranty?

yes mr. Doug , his boat is gorgeous on the inside , i get lots of compliments though which makes his sellers remorse inflame. the other day a dock walker was complimenting the jarvis and Blue walked by and said " your boat is ugly " lol , of course i poke the wound on occasion.
