Re: Just Dreaming Out Loud

40 years ago I remember seeing a boat on the dock and thinking "that would be a dream come true".. it was a Columbia 26 - the thirty footer beside it was lottery territory.

Dreams and circumstances can change... now we've been up to 40 feet, heading back down with 35.

My current dream boat would be more along the lines of a Salona 35/37 - no need for anything bigger.

And I'd take the kids for sure, except they have their own boat now.. chasing their own dreams....
