A Really Good Sales Transaction

I haven't been on here much lately but I thought I'd report on my recent sale.
As some of you know I purchased my tri just about a year ago. The boat and I had a few dings and bruises and really re-learned lots about sailing. My faulty rotator cuff was really acting up on the high wind days so I decided to let her go. After about 8 weeks a buyer came through and the actual transaction was flawless. She was from Europe but decided to keep the boat at the same old slip here in Puget Sound. Because she was traveling back and forth she asked me to look after the boat and "of course I could sail it if I wanted to".
So I have been out a few times on my old boat and it's like riding a bike. It's all so easy now. That daggum cruise ship has to get past me again (remember that?) this week so I need to move the boat and might as well sail her again.
It doesn't get any better than this.

Sure it could... you should tell her that the fridge needs to be kept loaded with good beer to provide some thermal mass, and that said beer needs to be changed out to keep from spoiling... and you are the man to do it for her!

But I gotta admit that you have it dialed in well!

And as everyone knows, beer goes stale after just a week or so...

Re: A Really Good Sales Transaction

You need to turn this into a business! I see several self help books in your future! Aww, envy is surely a terrible thing. ..
