We Are Stray Dogs

I'm Robert and my wife is Nettie. We sold our home in Michigan and purchased a 37" Irwin MK V center cockpit. She is "Stray Dogs" located in Stuart Florida. In 2 months this will be our new home and our new life! Goodbye cold and snow. Hello wind, sun and fun!

Re: We are Stray Dogs

Happy days!

Stuart is a wonderful place to sail. Where are you gonna "drop anchor" metaphorically (or litterally) speaking?

Re: We are Stray Dogs

Welcome aboard! New member here too, and by the looks of, we have the same thoughts on leaving the cold and snow for warmer shores. ANCHORS AWAY!

The boat is in the water @ 3300 kanner hwy. We can't live on her there. We move down end of year and are looking for an apartment nearby. I'll be remodeling the interior for 2-4 months then she comes out to a self service yard and I'll do a bottom job and get the centerboard installed etc.. etc...
If you have any information let me know.



Thanks, Robert
