Thanks for the friendly welcome .
The name Redemption is dbl barreled. Of course.
The boat was lost
- neglected and abandoned ,
the previous owner , a mate of mine , sadly got hit hard with cancer . He was sooo close to dying but made it just. as a result of the crippling private hospital expenses, he had to give up on his dream of restoring her for day charter
application on the Dam where he has his lodge . Get the picture!
Not to stretch it out , the long and short of it is , my dream replaced his and he knew the yacht should go to me . Quote , “ I knew in my heart Des that you were the right guy For her .”
I offered him a minimal payout .
And Now the yacht will be liberated back into salt water
5 months of daily love saw the yacht being redeemed to a touch of her former glory Days .now careening with a renewed Vigor in the step , we are well on our way to realize the new dream .
Renamed Redemption, she is reborn , loved and has hopes and dreams well alive again.
Just like some of us salty old sea dogs
- we never die.
3 words describe how she sails
Stealthy. Graceful with Finesse
