So there I was Saturday afternoon doing a few things down below on the boat.(topping oil, adjusting belt etc) I pop up out the companion way and I'm surrounded by people all coming for the race (they all meet at my YC) One says to the other.. "hey talk to Denise she may ... ' I didn't hear the rest.
Next thing I know I'm politely saying; "Sure,come aboard" He goes below and start looking under ALL of the bunks and cushions.. I'm above saying things like; "Force 10 stove, and new impeller, new water heater, traveler, cutless, PSS, halyards, barrier coated, engine was replaced by PO"... his friend heard me.. he kept looking under bunks. (anyone knows water isn't going to be there. It's going to be in the bilge) Anyway.. apparently all the things new were of no interest.
Then comes the offer, then comes the "deal"with the offer. Then comes the nit picking.. I then say.. "Tell you what! Come back on a day that's nice and I'll take you out on the boat" I get a call last night 10pm. Thursday.. Now I'm thinking I don't even want to sell.
He's going to be in Barnegat Bay. (shallow draft area) my O30 needs all of 5ft.
I'm now thinking of the chore of finding another boat, surveys, travel, (looking under bunks) etc. Yet for now, I at least know what I have and love my boat more then last year.. and the year before.. But I do want a 35-38 to live on sometime in the future. I'm actually a little be upset with this sudden situation as a possible way out and into a large boat! ARRG
