thanks everyone!!!! It is so exciting!!!! i am a photographer too, so I am thrilled about the new shots I will be able to get from on the water, as well.
I had a case of butterflies yesterday as I was constantly keeping my eyes on the clock waiting, and waiting for five thirty to get here, so we could meet (marty) the previous boat owner, and make things final. These weren't the nervous butterflies, but different, A good different. That feeling we use to get whenever we would pack for our weeks vacation in Negril, Jamaica, or upon an Ocean Liner cruising the caribbean, but this feeling was even better and more intense! My hubby said I was pacing yesterday morning. I think i am more excited than him!!! and this was his idea/dream to buy a boat.
We will be going back to the marina to make things final with the slip, and insurance stuff this afternoon, and to move another crate onto the boat. As for my boat shoes I think they are spiveys brand , or spideys something like that, but I want 2 a flip flop style, and the traditional loafer style.
We have been searching for new things to put on our little boat. I have been trying to learn the new boat terminology. I need a rope tying book! So many things to learn. such an adventure ahead of us.
We already have a list of things we want!
1. air conditioning....suggestions?
2. GPS
3. fabric to make curtains & recover the cushions (I sew)
4. tiller cover
5. make new cushions as some were missing from the little single coffin like bed that I won't be sleeping in, the dinette that folds down is where I will rest my head at night.
thanks everyone!! is it Friday yet!!

I know you will have a great time learning to sail her, and treat yourself, buy 2 pairs of deck shoes!! Welcom aboard!!
