Dave nailed it! Stupidest April Fools joke ever. (Knottygirlz put me up to it)! No way in hell I could afford a yacht like that on a simple servants salary! *lol* Don't feel bad I got everybody at work too. My boss almost had a heart attack when I handed in my resignation letter with a fake copy of a winning lottery ticket! Had to be careful though that coulda backfired!

Congradulations
I have a friend that has a Camano Troll 31 it is absolutely the most fun you will ever have on a power boat. The boat is amazing, it's the best use of space I have ever seen on a small boat, the 31 seems to have the interior size of a 40 footer. The owner is and older guy, a sailor all his life, still miss's sailing at times but truly enjoys the Camano. It seems all his sailing buddies me included really enjoy the boat, we get six or eight of us aboard and head off on a day trip for lunch, ice cream in a nearby harbor and even with that gang aboard it is not crowded. The owner cruises Maine in the summer and has taken the boat to Floriday via the intercoastal several times. Cruises at 12kts top is 14kts so you can get there and back in good time. I think by the picture your Camano is the new 41 ft version, I have only seen it at the Newport RI boat show but it seems to have all the great features and more.
Have fun
Cheers

April Fools, right???

If not, then congratulations!! I'm coming to that point in my life where I have to make the decision to keep going on my old project or just bite the bullet and buy something I can go ahead and sail. I sure didn't think I'd get so old so soon.

Good luck,

JohnL
