Honestly, I couldn't replace this boat. It is an amazing boat and I am bitter sweet about selling her.

I have a different story than many perhaps. In my 20s, I had cancer twice. One of them involved radiation treatment in my abdomen area. I am totally healthy now at age 46, but try to live life as if I may not be around when I am 60. It is a fact that radiation treatment increases risk over time of other cancers developing from the radiation. May never happen....but I don't want a list of regrets in life.

When I was 35, I never touched an instrument...learned guitar, then bass and now play in a cover band that gig's regularly. Always wanted a big boat, so a couple years ago, I did that. I have loved the experience immensely and have created many great memories for myself and my family. Now,different adventures await. I knew exactly the time and money commitment of a boat. Having said that, now is the time to re-allocate that time and money towards new experiences. We will likely travel more. Panama at Christmas, Europe next summer etc. It will be a been there done that item.

These pics do not even do the boat justice. This was the dirtiest it has ever been. The broker took pictures after not being properly washed all winter, as my marina shuts off dock water during the winter months. The boat gleams and the teak is freshly varnished. Someone will get a great vessel.

Paul, you've been a great custodian of Big Tuna. An extremely well kept and beautiful boat.

Have to agree she is a beauty and I am going to steal a couple of your improvements ie washer, dryer saloon layout, etc for my 49RPH.

Good luck on your sale and your next steps, we never know what tomorrow will bring and my story is similar to yours and I have found out that the higher we aim the higher the results and the more rewarding tomorrow is no matter what the doctors may sometimes say.
