Lagoon 380 'Indigo Moon' SOLD !

Hi guys,

It's done.

The haulout was perfect, the survey was perfect, the seatrial was perfect.

The surveyor went all over, including engine compartments and all lockers, in his white socks that were perfectly white at the end of the day. He wrote me afterward to thank me for being aboard and that my care and detailing was apparent everywhere he looked and that my cat was cleaner and nicer than a lot of brand new ones and that I was to be commended for an amazing job.

My predictions were right. The first person who KNEW what they were looking at AND had the money, made a fair deal immediately.

After a little paperwork over the last few days, and some money being wired today, Indigo Moon has now been sold and I am a boat owner no more!

Put every emotion on the wheel, from joy to heartbreak and spin it . . . I'm experiencing random flashes of the whole spectrum as you might imagine.

Tomorrow, we'll take one last ride up the New River to deliver the boat to the storage dock and into the hands of the contractor who will care for it until the new owners get down in November and head for the Bahamas.

And we'll be headed, like the Beverly Hillbillies, with a car loaded to the gills toward home in South Louisiana. Home Sweet Home.

The boat will be renamed. So, fittingly, all of the adventures of Indigo Moon will be ours to keep.

She was the most amazing material thing I have ever owned. Long ago she became an anthropomorphic living being to us. And she has been a flawlessly loyal friend through thick and thin.

We'll miss her, I'm sure. But we are equally excited about the fabulous opportunities that lie ahead.

Thanks for all your support and help over the years, and above all the love and fellowship I have enjoyed here. I'll still be around.

Peace, Love and Lobsters,

Buddy

My beloved IP 380 got a new owner last November. I know every one of those random emotions, Buddy. Congrats to you!

Congrats Buddy, I'm happy for you, but sad you won't be sharing any more cruising adventures with us.

So now that your boat free, if you were going to head out into the blue again next year, what boat or boats would you be looking at?

I know you've always got a thoughtful perspective on things, and surely you have considered the idea.

Inquiring minds want to know..................................

By the way, thanks for all your posts over the years. You are my hero!

congrats! I looked at her on your website for a long time (almost everyday), as she is a very fine boat, but she was just a tad out of my price range.

best wishes in your future endevours!

Brian

INDIGO MOON!

She's my favorite!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks again, and you're right, it should be "Peace, Gumbo and WHO DAT?!"

I'll come 'round now and then and see how y'all are doin'

Buddy

Congratulations - I think.

I know that someday Relax Lah! will head on to new ownership. I can't imagine that day. She ain't much but she's mine.
