Thanks, PV. its looking like we maybe dodged the need to be out of the country for a month. found someone who was related to someone etc. hey, its a banana republic...or maybe conch republic, but at the moment we are awaiting word on our visa.
We WILL be going to Texas
, just not in a hurried and unplanned way. All my immediate family
: parents and siblings' families are in Houston/Katy/Cypress area. My wife has never met her in-laws...should be interesting. I have told her I was raised by a pack of wild rednecks, but shes going to have to see this mob
to believe it.
Just recently started considering trailerable boats...as an alternative to cats. Once my focus was re-adjusted, we also just found a Flicka for sale
here, already in country and sitting on blocks at the shipyard. Thats an interesting boat, as well. Owner says $ 20K, but will talk. thats pretty interesting, in itself. It doesnt have a trailer, though.
If I dont get SOMETHING with a sail on it in the near future, I fear I will be forever lost
to the powerboat crowd. Unfortunately, power boats are pretty much a necessity here, kind of like the family
car only more important.
