Boat Car

I hope this doesn't get me in detention, but I wanted to mention that our weekend boat car is for sale.

Its a 2000 Mazda Miata LS, Black with Tan leather interior. We've owned this car for 9 years and only drove it on weekends when our schedules and conditions permitted. Its never seen snow and rarely seen rain. I have an ad on autotrader.com with pictures and a free carfax report. Search for ad AT-1073FEC7 or look for Miatas near 20176.

The car only has 33,000 miles and is priced below cars with double that. I'd put this in the classifieds but there is no heading for a car and I don't think they get much traffic. I only mention it here because I think its a great car that someone in the Chesapeake area might enjoy driving to their boat or for a recent grad that need a well maintained low milage car.

PM if anyone has any interest, and sorry for the intrusion on your sailing discussions.

I fully expected to see an Ampicar or James May's Triumph/Sailboat. Instead I'm reminded how much I miss my old Miata. It was dark blue, tan top, tan leather. 130,000 hard miles. Still ran like a Swiss watch. I autocrossed it, I drove it in snow with weights in the trunk, I brought a 14' red maple home from the nursery on the passenger seat. I never locked the doors and in warm weather I only put the top up when it actually started raining. Really fun car, but not nice enough to be worried about. Sold it partly because my motorcycle was gathering dust.

Keep the expenses low and the good times high.

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.
