WOO HOO! Offer Accepted

We just had our offer accepted on the boat we will be living aboard for the foreseeable future. We have sold the house, sold or given away the possessions, are renting till April when the Admiral finishes her work, then it's off on an '82 Morgan OI 416. I've spent ALOT of time on this forum getting ALOT of information. Now we're looking forward to perhaps supplying info as we learn stuff. So we have a boat, no debt, $2300/month income and a lifetime ahead of us. Does it get any better?

I'm guessing not.

Re: WOO HOO! Offer Accepted

PapaBruce, Congratulations! We are also living aboard our Morgan OI and typically cruise from Maine to the Bahamas with the seasons. Where do you plan to "homeport" or will you be constantly underway?- maybe our wakes will cross.

Re: WOO HOO! Offer Accepted

You guys are the absolute best! We are enjoying a bottle of wine to celebrate and tearing up a little at all the kind remarks. I'd love to know where Capt Force goes in Maine as we have family in Portland. I'd love it if our wakes crossed. Becky and I are really looking forward to being contributing members to the Forum and meeting some of you out there!
