Good luck in all that you do.
Good on yer!

Sometimes time available is not always as long as one assumed.........

Good luck with your plans Mike, Paula and Lynx - can't say there isn't a tinge of envy - but you never know life may change again and it may happen for us after all - pls keep us all posted on your plans.

Best Regards,

I did it!

With a little nudge from my boss and best friend (Cchris) and this site I made the plunge.
I put in an offer on my boat today and fly to St. Petes tomorrow to close the deal.
I will be the proud owner of a 1985 Gemini Cat when the check clears. The boat was and is a pretty amazing deal after the typical refreshements.
The best bet is that I have experience with this type of boat!
I am fighting the sick feeling in my belly right now. I am excited and overwhelmed at the same time.
I guess during the flight I will get on top of putting up a web site.
I will post photos of the boat on Monday.
