Answering Denr''''s question
Admit it, Denr, you had a little fun with that name thing - and I''m sure you could do much more.
Since you asked (will this guy ever buy that boat?): We just signed the deal for a house on a beautiful canal in SW Florida. We''ll be moving there in 2 years, and then I''ll get my shoal-draft cruiser. The sale proceeds from our PA home will buy the boat. No funds to spare right now for a temporary boat up here and no place close enough to home to suit me to sail her anyway.
The two year countdown may seem like a long time to some, and if I die or my health fails in the meantime, "them''s the breaks." For me, the countdown to my wife''s retirement (not mine) gives me just the right amount of time to get things in order (you know: Priorit-Ising). Sometimes the anticipation is pretty good, too.
Fair winds all.
