Hello All, New SailBoat Owner & Smiling (1st day)

I have been looking for a decent sailboat and finally won a bid on -- Islander 37, MS

It seems to be a decent boat & glad to have her. I think I will have it trucked home by Friday or Monday of next week.

I'm retired from the Army, helicopter pilot, Vietnam 70/71, Kuwait & other places (secret), maint. test pilot, now retired with 24 years active. I've been around the block, several times... FAA Powerplant & Airframe Mech., commerical pilot, diesel mech., welder, sawyer, farmer, logger, over the road trucker.. and all that at 64 YO. Hoping to retire and stay retired. Have been planing & planing & dreaming to get a decent boat, fix it up here & there and sail down to Grenada and return back to FL. Who knows, perhaps, I'll go out again, but somewhere else, we will see. My health is fair ( - ) and may not be fair in the future.. one never knows.

Take Care,

Avery (HighFly27)
