Navigator 45 delivery Lake Union to Vancouver, WA

Just finished up a great 7 days of the delivery of a Navigator 45 from Lake Union to Vancouver, WA. Got to spend the weekend in Seattle with the family and do some day racing on a J-122e. Delivery crew showed up on Sunday and we drove the boat from shilshole to port townsend in a south gale. It was blowing so hard there was smoke on the water. Coming into boat haven marina we struck a rock and mucked up starboard wheel. Got lifted in the AM, then the co-op hammered, stick welded, and grinded the prop back in shape. Back in the water by late PM and we were on our way to Port Angeles. Stopped by border patrol that night, and then breakfast with John a local on this forum. Headed out through hole in the wall, were we were greated by several whales and head a beautiful down the coast with one of those godly sunsets. 2 am bar crossing and set into Astoria about 4:30 am. Went to Ilwaco for fuel, breakfast and quick chat with pacific salmon charters for some charter captain work this summer. Then it was a quick run up the Columbia river and put it her in her spot were my boss is going to liver on her over the next year. Put upwards of $1000 of fuel into this thing ...... now I know why I will own a sailboat.

Do you know what year model it is? We just bought a 42', but this one looks a bit newer than our 2001.
