The Two Happiest Days of a Boat Owners Life

Well, it is said that the two happiest days of a boat owners life are the day they buy a boat and the day they sell it. Well, we sold our boat. In some ways I am glad. The timing worked out terrible and caused many changes in plans. I am glad that we sold it in this buyers market. I am sad because of the all the fun times we had and we really liked the boat. Our main reason for selling was that it did not fit our long-term cruising plans. The new owner seems really nice and has good plans for the boat. I think he will have fun with it. He got a good boat.

It is also said that when one door closes, one door opens. We are now going to start the process of finding our next boat. I look forward to this because it is really a buyers market right now.
