We're Buyin' A Boat -- Pearson 365

We are now far enough along in the process that I can't jinx the deal now so I'm happy to report that we are buying a boat!

We found a really nice 1981 Pearson 365 ketch. The boat has been well cared for and maintained by the current owner for the past 11 years. It was repowered in 2004, had a bottom job 2 months ago, and is in really good shape. The boat surveyed well with only minor issues (not bad for a 28 year old boat). The surveyor was actually quite impressed with the boat and kept telling us he really liked what he was seeing. We are closing on October 6.

Now for the obligatory pictures:

The only problem with our new boat is the name. We are currently struggling to choose a new name.

To me, the name New Fantasy sounds like a strip club...not that there is anything wrong with that.

We plan on moving it to Port Aransas. We live in San Antonio and it is just so much more convenient!
