I finally made a decision. After researching, (not nearly long enough) and soul searching, (for far too long) I finally reviewed the (not very) short list of prospective boat and finally made a decision and bought myself a 1976 Willard
. Quiet Passage
was in Lottsburg, Va., so after the survey
and other dances a friend and I fueled her, rigged her, provisioned her and brought her south to her new home in North Carolina
So I have now experienced one of the two happiest days in a boat owner's life.
She is safe and sound in her new home off the Pongo river and I am busy cleaning/organizing;learning her and will hopefully hard at sailing her in a month or so.
What a feeling.
