Re: Thirty Days 'til I'm Outta Here !

My boss keeps telling me I can't retire, he has too much work only I can do. I keep telling him he need$ a better rea$on for me to $tay than that.

My house is sold and I will be living in a 19' trailer by the end of November. I want that trailer to be at a marina somewhere, not at a hanger.

If he wants me to train someone he better find that someone soon.

Re: Thirty Days 'til I'm Outta Here !

Woohoo! Total sympathies, our "6 week refit" went to 6 months in the blink of an eye... but YOU ARE ON YOUR WAY!!!! (and so, at long last, are we).

Hope she is a lovely snug, dry, easily-handled masterpiece of nautical craftsmanship! Waiting on those details :-)

I've been following Christie and Matt's blog for awhile and I suspect you are getting a good boat Don. Congrats!!

Re: Thirty Days 'til I'm Outta Here !

Very cool. If the boat is in half as good a shape as it looks in the photos it will be as close to sailaway as I have seen.

Congratulations. Hope the survey and closing go well.

I am told the bottom is a bit chalky and may require a scuff and coat before the splash. It wouldn't be a bad idea anyway since it's on the hard already. I am also going to check the zincs.

What's really funny is that I was planning on buying a boat in Kemah, Tx and sailing it to Hampton, Va. The people that own Kaleo live in Tx and sailed it around to Annapolis, saved me a long trip.

The check is in the mail!

I wish you well in many ways.
