Here she is, my new Pearson 28-2! The survey went fine, and the wire transfer cleared today. So happy to finally have my own boat!
Many thanks to Jimgo, who saw one of my previous threads while I was searching and put me in touch with the previous owner right when she went on the market.
We'll be sailing out of Shipwright Harbor, in Deale, MD. Thanks to everyone here who offered advice while I was taking the plunge.
