Selling was not fun


I sold a boat back in 2007. It was horrible to say goodbye. I owned the boat for only a few years (3) and didn't think I would mind selling as much as I did.

It didn't really hit me until the sea trial. Suddenly, someone else was sailing MY BOAT. I wanted to trim the sails differently, flake the lines differently, steer differently, but I had to just sit there and bite my lip.

I keep in touch with the new owner and he really likes the boat, so that helps. But selling was not fun.
