Re: Recommendations for Delivery/moving Skippers

To OP,

Thanks for Denise's post, I looked up the said boat. I just realized that it is a 2014 Jeanneau 44DS. I think you will be better served by a USCG licensed captain with a million ton endorsement with a million mile off-shore sea time. .

Although I have sailed many new boats, 2011 Jeaneanu 45 DS, 2011 Dufour 40E, 2012 Jeanneau 409, 2012 Bavaria 40 and etc, I don't think I am qualified to take your new baby to Rock Hall no matter how easy it seems. I formally and respectfully redraw my inquiry for the delivery. I will not serve you well in this situation.

I should have done my home work before sticking my head out and replied the post blindly. Thanks Denise. I will try to do a better job in the future.

BTW, I am pretty sure he has a shoal draft, less than 5.5 ft.

Fine Print:
I read, I think, and I act independently; I don't come here to win a popular contest on Sailnet, nor I am here for hookup. I come here to learn, be challenged and be inspired in the art of sailing the big Ponds. I am NOT afraid of drowning in the sea, but I am afraid of dying in a nursing home and burdening those who I love.
I am old school. Integrity is to do the right thing even when no one is watching.
