Unless something major happens between now and Friday, we are the proud owners of our new home, a 2003 Beneteau
473! It’s the 2-cabin version and we are already obsessed with her.
has been surprisingly smooth. We were planning on waiting until September to start looking, but while we were helping a friend painting the hull
of his boat
we found her. I guess that's Karma?
We were lucky to find a good buyer’s broker
and a great surveyor
(although time will tell of course!).
The only major changes recommended from the survey
was a new water
pump, re-bed a couple of hatches, and replace the float switch for the bilge pump
. That doesn't sound bad!
Hopefully, we’ll start sailing our way back from Mystic, CN to Boston this summer.
