Moving Overboard

I moved off of my boat today. It was not a good day. I felt like I was saying goodbye to a family member. I am on the market, officially.

People have said that the two best days of boat ownership are the first day and the last -- They lie.

Broke my heart the day I delivered my boat to the broker for sale.

The boat wasn't listed. It is still in the family, I will just not be living on it again. It was an absolutely wonderful and enlightening experience.

Ah, so you were speaking literally - it really is “you” that’s on the market. So, where are YOU listed?
