Thank God for caffiene.

We've got a landing spot and winter storage arranged, the funds transferred, three options for a slip in the spring, and the contacts to get the boat hauled, prepped and transported. Just trying to arrange a back-haul to save on transport $$$ and the owner to get the boat to the lift prior to that.

A few more gray hairs for sure.
Great to hear things are moving along, but I got tired just reading that post (about your trip)!

We have received a counter offer from the sellers, so at least we're still talking! No official agreement yet, but I'm still hopeful. Stay tuned...
