I finally bought a boat!

Ive done it, at last, Ive bought my boat and moved on board in a windy Valencia at 1am Friday! My boat is a Corbin 39 and is in great shape having been well treated! Am just finding my way around her right now and am in the middle of changing the flag, hope to see you all soon, best, Pablo!

Thanks Alex, funny enough the previous owners were flying out of Malaga which is a 6 hour or so drive BUt is where I was...so I took the car back to Valencia, saved us all a bit of money by returning it to same office! I expect to be hear around a month, still got lots to do, am enjoying being on board at last! Seems a great boat the Corbin 39!
