Just Bought a Boat....

Well, folks, I'm now at the first of the happiest two days of my life . She's already away in winter storage, but by this time next year, you'll hopefully run into me cruising down the ditch at least as far as Georgia. Here she is:

I may be young, but I'm a bit of a throwback. I blame my father entirely. He got me started off on the wrong foot when he built her (the Nina):

The Nia & Pinta - The Columbus Foundation

Oh, well, I guess there's no saving me now.....

Humph...You salt water dudes get all the great boats.

Seriously, she is a beauty and I hope have an excellent journey to wherever the winds take you.

Peace,

Stunning, I'm envious (and I already own a classic). Maybe I'll see you on the water one day.
