New Boat I'm Buying.

Hey guys,

Well, after I didn't get my Catalina I was a little depressed, but I'm glad I didn't buy it. Because, I recently came across something way better. Had I known this was on the market earlier I would have looked at it first!

I've scheduled the survey for next Friday. My only concern is that the deck is a little high off the water and there are no life-lines.

I also don't know much about Diesel engines, can anyone help out?

Take a look at it and let me know what you think.

Going over to power, eh ! Well, we all get older and eventually need something easier to handle with more room below.

Yeah, but it's made in China. You know the problem with that, you buy the boat and an hour later you want another one.

Are you referring to boats or something else?

Don't worry about the diesel, it will make a fine schooner.

Hey Kacper

Good news is you'll never run out of water.. but I'd like to be there when you fill the fuel tanks (Ka-ching...)

Bad news is I think you'll have to cancel any plans to visit Smugglers Cove or Princess Louisa inlet.... and you better hope that anchor windlass never breaks down!

Re-fueling that will break the wallet, having to haul up the anchor manually will break the back...

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.
