Finally have a signed agreement again (#3)!

OK, so here I go again, starting a worthless thread with "NO PICS", and I'm sure that a fellow Sailnet member will happily point out that no one is going to believe me until I post some details. I know this, but we're not assuming this is "our boat" until after the survey. We're not even considering what we'll name this boat until we know the purchase is going forward--each time we do otherwise, the deal falls through.

As some of you may recall, we've gone down this road before. On boat one, we never came to an agreement, and on boat two, the survey showed unforseen issues (see other threads for details is you're curious). Well, maybe the third time is a charm, right folks?

This boat is in the north east, so that makes things a little "different" from our perspective--the boat's on the hard, winterized, blocked in by other boats, etc., not to mention we'll have to sail her down in the Spring, back to the Chesapeake Bay. Geez, when I write it all out like that--I think we might be nuts!

Anyway, due to availability schedules for everyone (including me, surveyor, the yard, my broker, etc.), the survey will have to wait a couple of weeks. That's part of the way it goes for long-distance purchases, unless I just don't attend the survey, but that's not an option for me personally.

So while there are no details or pics yet, if things go well in the survey, you can be certain I'll post them in short order. In the meantime, I'll be keeping my fingers crossed, doing the "hope the survey goes well" dance, sending out "good vibes", and looking for additional ways to keep my superstitions thriving.

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.

Hey, just add my good vibes to the general karma for this one!

Whereabouts in the north east is the boat located? I love that part of the world (though it is bit cold and snowy just now, even for a Scotsman ).

When the time comes to sail her down and you need any crew, just let me know. I would be happy to help.

Leith (rhymes with teeth) is the port of the City of Edinburgh in Scotland. A Leither is someone who comes from that area.

I must go down to the sea again, to the lonely sea and the sky - I left my shoes and socks there, I wonder if they're dry?

Hope this one sticks for you!

I just got the "Satisfaction of Mortgage" form from the prior owner's bank on the boat we just bought and he paid the bank $1,200 more than I paid him (plus he had to divvy also out $3,600 in commissions)!

Not that I'm reveling in his loss but it makes me feel like I did well with the price. On the other hand, what did he know that I haven't discovered that would justify a $4,800 pasting to get away from the boat? Hmmmmm?
