Congrats, Doug. A bittersweet event, to be sure, but on to better things.

It's really great that another 36 Gulfstar is back on the water. Sincere congrats.

And as the proud new owner, let me just say that the original posting did not exaggerate. This is indeed a creampuff boat! I feel very lucky to have it. Of course, the really ironic thing is that Doug only lives about 30 minutes away from me! :-)

Thanks everyone.

It worked out to be a very fair deal all around, I think. Good for both John and me. John is a super nice guy, and though in the past when I have sold something big (cars, houses) my policy is to wash my hands of it, I don't feel that way at all in this instance. I know my old boat is a good one, and I'll be there to offer John as much help as he wants with the transition.

Now on to the boat search.

And yeah, I left the boat in a slip about 6 hours from home down in South Florida on our way back form the Bahamas because the market for trawlers there is probably 10 times the size it is here. John will keep the boat in St. Marks, about 8 miles from our house.

Go figure.

It's a great attitude to have, that is, until JW calls you one morning and says: "Hey, when are we going to get together and do the head re-plumbing job. I've got a heck of a mess in the bilge".

Nope. Doesn't work that way. I have both sold boats and bought boats. You can call the previous owner and ask questions (if you are lucky enough to feel that you are able to, which I think I am), but it stops there. Likewise, the person that bought my sailboat can call me and ask questions, and I will answer them to the very best of my ability. But if she has to have work done, and cannot do it herself, then there are people out there that will do it. For a fee.

John
