Sooooooooo Close

Hi All

If anyone has been folling my early few threads they will know my story, so for those that have....its getting closer.

The boat was surveyed on Thursday and the test sail is next Tuesday, and hopfully the money will be ready on Wednesday-all going to plan I will be a boat owner on Thursday. She as before is a Martzcraft 35 first slipped in 1997 and since had a few extras added. A crusing cutter set up for a couple and boy oh boy am I looking foward to our coming adventures. We will spend the next year doing short coastals and getting use to her, perhaps a month or two in the Whitsundays, then over the following year will save and plan for the big one...meeting you guys and gals. During the past week or two have sent a couple of threads to a few and hope that we can keep up our short greets. Will keep up the posts and pic's T.T.F.N

A special thanks to "wheels" and "harryrezz"

Congratulations! I hope It all works out, As they say"the two happiest days in a persons life is, The day you buy a boat, And the second happiest day is the day you sell a boat!"
Cheers and happy cruising
