Wow, when things are meant to be things can certainly move along. We were plodding along on our 10 year plan with a goal of buying
a boat and moving aboard in Fall of 2014 or Spring of 2015 however that has changed. We were looking at boats late this summer and stumbled upon a beautiful boat in excellent condition. We decided to try to buy it and our finances fell into place without having to take out a loan and on November 1st we became sailboat owners of a beautiful Tayana 37'. The catch was we still had a daughter in high school
(junior) and owned a home in Montana...the boat is in Washington
. Well our daughter participated in the sea trial and survey
process and loved it and is ready to move. I have been trying to hire someone to fill my position at work since 2008 and finally found the right person that started last week and....we showed our house last night and it is not even on the market yet. We are now looking at April 2013. YIKES, that is only 4 months away to downsize from a 4 bedroom house to a 37' sailboat. We are so excited and I just had to share.
