It's Official . . . Woot !

After almost a year and a half of searching for that perfect monohull for myself and my family... we're now the proud new owners of a Prout Event 34.

In the end it's probably a better boat for the toddler son to get to know living aboard and long term cruising on... and:

"if mama ain't happy - ain't nobody happy"

Got to get it back to Australia first

Re: It's Official. Woot!

Good timing for heading that direction. You will miss a lot of incoming traffic, Baja ha-ha, class of 2011 heading inbound by November~December.

Bahia Concepcion and Mulege is a favorite hang out for me.

La Paz, Bolivia? Isn't that landlocked.
You've got an interesting story. Have you told it on another thread?
That's going the extra mile to find a boat!
Congratulations! by the way.
