I was just wondering why your pants would be above water in a MOB situation...

Not really....but at least they wouldn't be pushing me, like your friends do with you

By the way, those are my "lucky" pants....so stop making jokes about them...

I don't make jokes about CD wearing girl underwear.

Melnra - Congrats on being so fortunate as to be able to pursue a dream! I recall speaking to you about it for a short bit at the One and Only First Annual Annapolis Boat Show Show Sailnet Get Together! (we were the ones with the Chinese food). Anyway, I just wanted to mention that I think you'll be hard pressed to find a Passport without teak decks, although you could always pull the decks off and glass them over, but then you might be opening up a pretty significant can of worms with other work. If you find a good source of "not on yachtworld" boats, please let me know! And yes, my boat is "sort of" for sale. In other words, since we're not buying the Hallberg-Rassy 53 that we thought we were going to get, "Pelican" is on the market but I'm not actively pushing to sell her.

They would be on #1 on my short list but a little more money than I want spent. Love this boat. Maybe I find someone to share this dream with, win the lottery, or get struck by lightning (for which I would make me forget about this nightmare of chasing sunsets). All are possible.

Labatt, I remember you and your wonderful family along with John and the rest of the gang. We had a great time. Have to do another party this spring. There is Passport 41 for sale in Ft Pierce now I will go look at when I go down next month. It doesn't have teak decks.

If you don't mind a bit of a commute, Harbourtown Marina in Fort Pierce has decent facilities. Overnight hop to St Augustine or Miami, a day's run to Lake Worth.

Melrna,
Take a look at this. Might be a bit smaller than you're looking at, but I think it's nice.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

You forget all the AFOC ballast at the bottom end ...


Melissa, I'm in a similar situation to you in that I am at that point now where it's time to actually commit to being on board all the time. I don't have any good advice about Florida or anything like that, but I wish you the best of luck in moving forward and getting your boat. It's a big step. I don't know about you but I am a little anxious about making the leap.

I too am very anxious. More nerveous about the location than anything else. We will see how it all works out as the months progress.
