Sorry that it didn't work out. There's worse things than kissing frogs, and there's bound to be a prince in line eventually. Frankly, I found the search most entertaining and educational and was a little disappointed when it was over.

Well he did let it loose the Bimini during hurricane and some gunnel damage, not revealed. Turd.


Back to kissing frogs I guess......


Boat name was "Door to Summer"

Remember this quote from Dr. House: "Everybody Lies".

Better luck in your search.

The one in Pensacola looks very nice. Probably a better choice overall.

It is, and trust me on this one, the pictures do not do it justice. This wife and I spent several hours on board and while walking away I says to her..."I really liked that boat", she says to me "yeah, me too"......then I says "I think we should make a move and try to buy", she agrees.......we turn around go back and made an offer, the owner agreed.

Survey this Friday.

Initial verbal from Jeff Hahn was "above average" for the survey....so everything is a go. Jeff Hahn is the surveyor from Florida Surveyor recommended by many on this forum.

So everything is still a go. Hopefully we swap keys and money next Friday and spend our first night on the boat.

Ahhh, that's great! Glad for you that it went so well, and I hope the transfer goes as you've planned.
