CD,

I was just out in the shop trying to reduce 5 tool boxes down to three. We are dividing the storage unit into 3 sections, dumpster, ship to the Philippines, and go on the boat.

Take the time it takes to get settled in, and BEST WISHES into sharing an anchorage with you........i2f

20 MPH ain't fast unless, you do it in a 1000sq 3/2 house on 10foot waves

I have a nervous stomach just thinking about what your ridding your self of and its not even me.....It will definitely be may biggest hurdle to ever moving onto a boat full time....I am attached to my stuff I will admit.

I for one am looking forward to your updates Brian.

Relationships are everything to me..everything else in life are just tools to enhance them.


The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.

I2f,

Would love to meet you and the Mrs' I2F!! The plan, subject to change, is to wait in Fort Myers Beach until APril or so. THen momma retires and come down. We may, due to Hurricane season, hang there until October of that year and punch out. Until then, we will spend time in the Bahamas, Keys, SW Florida, and the Tortugas (one of my favorite places). In fact, we may spend Christmas in the Tortugas if you want to join us? We would head out on December 18/19.

Up to you and anyone else that wants to come! You bring the beer, we will bring Thomas the Train Engine (which may be upgraded to Transformers by then!!).

Scott,

Luckily I already have a bunch of duplicates on the boat, so getting rid of a lot of it will not be hard. I may also keep some of it in storage. Dad and I have a LOT of woodworking tools. He was a professional cabinet maker (owned a comapny), so we have a quite an array of different tools.

We don't have a date yet to leavem but I close the shop in less than 2 weeks. Imagine has sat pretty idle for 3 years+. She needs some attention to make her ready. Nov. 23rd I start in earnest on making her ready putting in 50 to 60 hour weeks on her. Most of the work is cosmetic. She needs to not only be ready to dance over the wave tops, but look good doing it too!.. ......i2f

Good luck Brian. Should you need a helping hand with anything in Mobile, drop me a line. Turner Marine is only about thirty minutes across the bay from me.

Brian if you do have the time to pop in occasionally and update such a thread there are alot of us here that would certainly get a real kick out of it.

Bon Voyage.

Years ago when I first graduated from college, I had an older coworker that always used to say "We are just slaves to our possessions".

He eventually sold everything he had, bought a small house and workshop with cash and followed his dream of building hand crafted furniture.

I was young then, and having few possessions at the time, couldn't understand his mantra or his quest to rid himself of the things that prevented him from following his dream. However, as time has passed, I've accumulated "mountains of things" as Tracy Chapman would say. When the weight of these things have demanded my time and/or financial resources when I'd rather have been doing something else, I've many times thought of his words and wondered if I'd ever be able to break the chains of my oppression and free myself of the "stuff" that I seem to "need".

Folks like CD gives hope to folks like me.

HAHA! Don't look up to me! You have not seen the mountains of toys being stocked on this boat! Please hold your praise until we know if she will still float after Kris gets all her pots and pans and stuff aboard. She is even taking the breadmaker.... ugh.
