After some negotiating, I signed a contract
today for the 1981 Contessa (pending survey
and sea trial). I decided, as many of you pointed out, that the other Contessa was too much of a fixer-upper for me.
This is easily the largest (and scariest) purchase
I have ever made in my life, but it will all be worth it when I am cruising along with (hopefully) sunshine on my head
Now, does anyone want to go for a trip from Santa Barbara to San Francisco
sometime after March?
I cook a mean fettuccine carbonara and I make monstrous club sandwiches.
You say you don't eat meat? That doesn't matter, I'll be cooking
up some noodly pad thai for your vegetarian stomach, along with some teryaki tofu with jasmine rice.
You don't want to buy a plane ticket back to Santa Barbara, or wherever it is in the states your coming from? I'll buy it for you, straight from San Francisco
back to your city of choice. You say you live in San Francisco already? Even better, I'll buy your ticket down to Santa Barbara and we can cruise
right back to your doorsteps.
You can choose the music
the whole way there too. You like country? I love country, we can break it down to Red Solo Cup all the way back. More of a rock guy? Bust out the Scorpions and rock it like a hurricane
. Whatever music
you want, you can two-step it to polka the entire way for all I care.
I'm trying to bring crewing
to a new level, crew 2.0. All I need is a good sailor to teach me the ropes along the way.
Thank you all!
