Hello, to those who contributed to this thread.
Here is the update of what is happening.
(1) I arrived in the US, and at Annapolis
where the boat is.
(2) I decided to transport the boat to Korea
, and sail/cruise/fix the boat there in my own space and time without having to do something unwanted just days before I left Korea
as I was wrapping up my duties there and thinking more clearly.
(3) So, I began to check out quote to ship the boat to Korea or Japan
I found on my way to Annapolis
, it is better to ship the boat from Baltimore
which is real near Annapolis than from LA area.
Physically less damaging and less costier in terms of money
So, I am in the selection mode for a shipping
company to transport my boat.
Lewis Specialized Trucking graciously agreed to reroute the truck's initial route
thus utilizing my deposit that was already paid.
(4) On the day I arrived, I met a broker who told me there is a potential client who checked my obat three times and want to make an offer that night.
I received the offer which is not bad, but does not really do justice to the money I invested.
Since I am not in a hurry to fly towards Hawaii
on this boat, I will give him a week for test sailing and surveying the boat.
But, I have to add that I really do not want to part with my boat...
Thanks again all you people who provided me with wise advices!
Happy Holidays for you all cruisers and sailors!
I still hope to see you on the water
in the near future.
