And nervous. I haven't really been sleeping a lot lately in anticipation of this sale, I don't feel like a will until I deliver her myself to her new berth in Boston and have her tucked away nicely for the winter.

I will post pictures soon. It looks like the broker just took the listing off of yachtworld....cause I own her. Ha ha ha!!!!
Congradulations! Later on you will come to understand that this is the second happiest day of your life!

Re: I Just Bought a Boat !

I can't stop smiling. I was mostly grimacing in that picture though because I was borderline hypothermic. That looks like a "here's my new boat" gesture but really it's a, "this water is dripping off of me" gesture.

Re: I Just Bought a Boat !

Good looking, now follow Momma Zees advice and have one hot toddy, of heck have a whole bunch of them. Get some weather gear">foul weather gear for your trip, fill the propane bottle, lots of coffee (don't forget the cups), and a big bottle of YUKON JACK to add to the coffee. LOL

I cannot agree more.. !

The only negative is the time you have to spend off her...
