I am in Jacksonville inspecting Bene First 38...

Flew in from TX to get the boat surveyed tomorrow morning at 8 am.
My Wife and I looked it over around noon and liked what we saw.
New cabin sole looked great, A/C was coooold, reefer was cold, the yacht had some new racing sails, Need to have some fabic put on the dodger frame but bimini is new and so are all the sail covers. SSb worked, all electronics are with in 1 to 2 years old, new 4 burner stove/oven was new and never used, corian counter tops looked very nice, and engine purred like a pussey cat. All the fuel system was relocated into what used to be a small head and up graded for easy accessablity, and oil filter was routed in the same manner. Very well thought out. If the survey goes well then I will buy the boat and Captain Woody (a columnist for Lattts and Atts Magazine and professional yacht deliverer Skipper) will sail it with Me and another crew member to Tortola BVI where I will start my new job as a Ship Wright. Wish me luck, and I will let you know how this all pans out. Man is yacht buying stressfull.
