We did it! Now ''Let's do it!''

Hello, last December, we just bought a Tom Lack CATALAC 9 M 1976 in Florida Keys after months and months of researching for the best boat for us as a live aboard. The cold water from up North was a great motivation!

We knew when we bought our ''Let's do it!'' that we will have a lot of work to do and since then we are doing it.... each day a little step at the time! After 4 months we are happy with the work done. We had already some help from the very helpful Rick from http://http://www.catamaransite.com/ and from the very know ledged and nice Talbot http://http://www.cruisersforum.com/...albot-726.html from here. THANK YOU VERY MUCH! MERCI BEAUCOUP!

We still have a lot to do but an interruption is eminent because we have to go back to sale our house. The sooner the better sold and we will be back to make her ready to sail from paradise to other paradises! The Cruisers Forum is very useful and we will try to add our part as best as we can. Good Wind everyone!

Re: We did it! Now ''Let's do it!''

Way to go! We just bought our 8m (24foot) sailboat out here in Los Angeles. I am sitting in the salon as I am writing this to you. Isn't it all such a beautiful feeling to finally get this ball rolling!~ Welcome to the dream!

Re: We did it! Now ''Let's do it!''

We did the same thing, and recently bought a 1984 Prout Snowgoose (37 ft catamaran).

Congrats and bonne courage (if you're a superstitious sailor, then I wish you "Je te dis merde" instead!)


Bien à toi,
Octopussy
