The haulout was perfect, the survey
was perfect, the seatrial was perfect.
went all over, including engine
compartments and all lockers, in his white socks that were perfectly white at the end of the day. He wrote me afterward to thank me for being aboard and that my care and detailing was apparent everywhere he looked and that my cat was cleaner and nicer than a lot of brand new ones and that I was to be commended for an amazing job.
My predictions were right. The first person who KNEW what they were looking at AND had the money
, made a fair deal immediately.
After a little paperwork over the last few days, and some money
being wired today, Indigo Moon has now been sold and I am a boat
owner no more!
Put every emotion on the wheel
, from joy to heartbreak and spin it . . . I'm experiencing random flashes of the whole spectrum as you might imagine.
Tomorrow, we'll take one last ride up the New River to deliver the boat
to the storage dock
and into the hands of the contractor who will care for it until the new owners get down in November and head
for the Bahamas
And we'll be headed, like the Beverly Hillbillies, with a car loaded to the gills toward home in South Louisiana. Home Sweet Home.
The boat will be renamed. So, fittingly, all of the adventures of Indigo Moon will be ours to keep.
She was the most amazing material thing I have ever owned. Long ago she became an anthropomorphic living being to us. And she has been a flawlessly loyal friend through thick and thin.
We'll miss her, I'm sure. But we are equally excited about the fabulous opportunities that lie ahead.
Thanks for all your support and help over the years, and above all the love and fellowship I have enjoyed here. I'll still be around.
Peace, Love and Lobsters,
