<<Deep breath>> Okay. I'M doing this.
I just had an almost six-digit windfall drop into my lap. After a week of feeling gobsmacked and wondering what I was going to DO about this, I woke up one day last week with the answer clear in my mind:
I'm buying a trawler.
Haven't decided on which one, exactly, yet.
Big-ish, as I drive semi-truck for a living and am full up to *here* with Tiny House living. Diesel, of course, and I am actually neutral on the single vs twin issue. I spent years and years working as a deckhand on the Mississippi and Ohio river towboats and harbor tugs, so handling a good big boat is nothing new to me-- though I freely admit I'm rusty.
So I wanted to thank in advance all who will help me in the coming months, will be patient with my dim-bulb questions, who will help me chart a true course to a good solution. Y'all seem like a friendly bunch and I'm much looking forward to getting to know everyone better.
It has not been told to me that the sea has ceased to be the sea.
