The settlement is over. I'm now in the process of "moving on" and making decisions. Before me are a couple of choices: repair boat or buy new one. Repairing my new boat is costly and a logistical nightmare. So I'm now looking at boats in the PNW for sale, and putting out a request to boats that are not on the market. To read more about my process, what I want and need and what I don't want, please refer to my post: Liveaboard seeks new sailboat? | Courtney Kirchoff
You guys rock. I thank you all for helping me through this disaster.
