Almost here almost :(

Well Everyone,

I bought my boat back in April. It has been sitting patiently across the state waiting for me to come and get her to start her refit/restoration. This past weekend everything came together so well. I rented a trailer from a fellow sailor in the area, I borrowed a stout 99 F350 Powerstroke from a co worker to go and pick her up. She towed awesome on the trailer. I stopped in Kirkland wa to drop off my brother and show my little nephew the boat. I decided to check out the truck make sure everything was ok then the tranny started dripping. Thank god I saw it start and didn't have to find out going over the pass the hard way. I think it just blew a seal from a plugged filter causing to much pressure. Its gotta go somewhere right...So this weekend I get to go over with two trucks one to haul the broke truck and one to tow the boat. The one towing the boat will be a 2003 1 ton Dodge with the cummins. Wish me better luck this week than last.

Jeff

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.

A Washingtonian? Yes I am but live over here on the east side in good old Spokane. I did live in Kirkland while I served as a coastie. My boat is sitting on top of Finn Hill at my brothers house til I can come and get her this weekend. My brothers neighbor thought his wife got him a boat for Fathers Day cause it wasn't there when he went to sleep. He woke up and saw an Islander 30 in front of his house. It gave me a good chuckle after Saturday being the day from hell.

You can take the Dodge (Cummins) and pull both the Ford and the Islander back at the same time.
