This Will Make You Smile . . . or Weep

From today's 'Lectronic Latitude, comes the story of a young couple who've been cruising the Med aboard their Islander 36 for the last few months . . . a vessel they bought for $10,000!

Altogether now, "If I'd only known!!"

"Not having a lot of money didn't stop Northern Californians Eli and Sara from enjoying a summer of cruising their own 36-footer in the Med.

"Does everybody remember Eli and Sara Botrell? A year ago October the Northern California couple responded to an ad in 'Lectronic for the Islander 36 Geja, which had been cruised most of the way around the world by Dick and Shirley Sandys of Palo Alto. After Dick died, Shirley put the boat up for sale, where is, as is. She just happened to be in Spain, and the price was just $10,000 to move the boat quickly."
