Wife and I retired this month and have been planning our new adventure for quite some time. The stars must be in perfect alignment since we just negotiated for a 98 Manta
40 within several weeks of receiving an offer for our home. Our heads are still spinning since we are moving some furniture and other items to Texas
from Tn. and the Manta
we have under contract
is in Charleston. Massive garage sale
and just sold one of our cars.
This was the first Manta we had seen and loved the boat. I realize a lot of the newer boats are more open from the settee to the cockpit
but they were usually out of budget
. We loved the layout of the Manta and really wanted an owners version instead of the typical charter
We should be on the boat by mid July if the survey
comes back with minor issues. It's amazing how fast you can fill up a house with stuff. We have all the stress of selling a home and buying
the boat but eliminating all of the unnecessary possessions seems to have a calming affect.
Time for a huge change from a 3k sq ft home to a 40 ft yacht!
