Salutations One and All

Afternoon to you all some might call it a midlife crisis but its been going on way too long this love of boats and the ocean I think the turning point was when I read that mark twain wrote..theres no finer thing a man can do than go to the sea and mess in boats ...took a bit literally and spent the next 15 or so years driving charter boats and commercial boats here there and everywhere , along the way I bought a john spencer designed 32' yacht ,what a flyer, since been sold and so am now looking to maybe buy another, poor mans Macgregor 65 so heres hoping ......unless of course the lotto gods are kind and then it will be the macgregor

Re: SALUTATIONS ONE AND ALL

Welcome to the forum...Maybe buy a smaller, higher quality vessel. You'd be surprised what you can find out there.

Aloha and welcome aboard!
Those MacGregor 65 are the poor (super thrifty) man's 65. Just my opinion.
kind regards,

Re: Salutations One and All

I should have taken my own advice and not talked down a person's dream, especially in a meets and greets. Sorry for the anti-MacGregor comment.
