Gotta take you on your word on that one CD, I've never been on one. Being also somewhat active on the TOG site I know their owners are almost cult like.

Key thing is, if you don't love the boat, your gonna learn to hate it if you buy it. So make sure it really feels right.

Mel...maybe put a Passport 40 like Labatts on that list to give you more to choose from...but nothing wrong with what you have there right now. Good hunting!

I found her

Well, after looking high and low, I finally found a boat that will love ME! Yea!!!! It is a Caliber 38. I put in an offer and it was accepted! Survey is next week I hope after I find one. The boat is in Port Royal, SC. If anyone knows a good surveyor down there please PM me. Now the dream and nightmare of boat ownership begin. I will have to hire a Capt to take the boat down to Miami next month. I wish I could do it but I cannot take the time off of work with the summer flying schedule beginning. I asked my boss for a week off and he just threw me out of his office on my rear.
Also I need to find insurance for the Miami area. I know that is going to hurt a lot when I see the premiums. I want to thank again all the sailnet members for their inputs and I am sure I will be asking a tons of questions later on.

Congrats! Hope the survey goes well. That's a 4 day, 3 night run offshore to Miami.

Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.

Melissa,

I heard the good news last night from our mutual friend.

Congratulations,

I had a dream, I was sailing, I was happy, I was even smiling. Then I looked down and saw that I was on a multi-hull and woke up suddenly in a cold sweat.

Welcome to the family !

The 38 is a great boat.. its the first Caliber I stepped onto after 30 other sailboats and relized that Caliber was what I had been looking for..

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.
