We're buying Miss Marisol!
It's a '78 Watkins 27. There's a new custom traveler for mainsheet control above the cabin, new rigging, sails in great shape, diesel purr's, roller furling head sail, solar power with inverter, auto helm, chart plotter, like new cushions, and more. It's ready to cruise.
I'm meeting the seller at their bank on Thursday to pay. They have a loan, so we're going to use my payment to get the title released. If anyone has advice on buying a boat in this situation, let me know.
We'll keep it in Port Charlotte for 1 month, then sail down to Islamorada and keep at a family house there until late summer. I'm thinking Dry Tortuga's this spring/summer too.
I'm so happy!
