Bryan, This is just awful. I know how excited you were about this boat. We were, too. We knew the 50' was too big for us.. but were anxiously awaiting the first 45's to roll out. We just liked the quality, design, etc. I was so hoping this would go well for you, and that these would start rolling off the line. I'm sorry you had to go through such a criminal experience. But, I thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for making your journey so public. It has probably saved people from getting into the same situation. It certainly has saved us from making a big mistake with Isara....
I'm so glad you bought a different boat, and are living the dream, despite the mess with Isara. We are counting down to our departure as well. Unforunately, we are unable to "just go" yet. Hubby still has 2 years (and a deployment) to go before he can retire... But, that gives us 2 more years of learning
.. and saving..
Best to you.. and hope to meeting you out there on our sailing adventures.
