Well, s/v Flight of Years was bought in late April, so yes, she was working on the boat in May 2007... but given the lead times of magazines, I am guessing the letter was written in March 2007 at the latest, since they generally have about four-to-six week lead time on magazines.
I don't think any intentional dishonesty is involved, since Gene and Heather were in negotiations to buy a new Nor'Sea 27 as I recall it, but got taken to the cleaners in some way in the process.

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.
