I like that boat!

Tell us more about it: Steel construction? What engine(s)? But most importantly, what anchor? 😳

Very cool. Post pics if you've got them. We love boat porn.

Like that 125 Cat. What does it draw?

I'd be interested to hear what you learn about dockage in that area. We'll be down there in March on vacation, but might do some casual abode shopping while we're at it...
