Talking It's ours, all ours!

Please allow me to introduce you to our new to us, soon to be re-christened s/v Grateful.

She's a 2006 FP Lavezzi. Currently in SXM, we'll be moving her to Pass Christian MS for minor re-fit, then off to see the world in early 2016.

More to come, to be sure, but for now scurrying around wrapping up post purchase details.

Precious, my Precious!

BTW - you don't understand, you don't have new boat. The boat has new people!

Re: It's ours, all ours!

Congratulations!!! We chartered a Lavezzi many years ago in the BVI's and I think it was the fastest cat I ever sailed. Great layout also.

Re: It's ours, all ours!

She looks fast and light... No charter boat will beat u to the favored moorings. Smile. So happy,and envious at the same time, for u. for most of us it takes a lifetime to get to your point. I am dying for my turn.
