Re: Couldn't do it

I was just wondering yesterday what you guys were up to and if you'd grown to like your life on the water or if you were shopping for a farm in Kansas....

Need nautcal therapy? I know just the trick!

Re: Couldn't do it

You mean the sale? Or is this some kind of suspense building . . .

From their blog:
"She's off the market, we're keeping her. Thanks to all who expressed interest, we do appreciate it! We had full asking price in sight (survey contingent this Wed). We' were giving away too much for too little, and had no detailed survey request entered the conversation we probably wouldn't be boat owners as of today. The thought of her being pecked at by a surveyor was more than we could bear at what we had her priced to move quick at. The potential new owners were very nice, and absolutely right in wanting to get a survey - it's just not what we had in mind though, and that's on us - not anyone else.

We don't know what's next. Mental help would be a good place to start probably."

Re: Couldn't do it

Personally I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

But there are lots of things you could do, right?

Re: Couldn't do it

Maybe a little sailing and time on the water will cure whatever is ailing you. Enough of your namby pamby angst filled days.....Get on with it.

I'll probably put her back on the hard and repower her with a used inboard over the course of the next year. No drama, just giving in to the inevitable I believe.

15k is in reality too low for what I have into her, and without an inboard she won't fetch top of the market like she should. If I'm wrong, tell me. Also, I'm not willing to go through haul outs, surveys and all that when I feel like I'm selling her low priced (which is what the potential sale I let go would have entailed). I'll probably wind up making her what most people would want, and selling her then but as of now I make no proclamations.
My opinions, to be taken as such:

First, if you love the boat and can afford her, keep her. Exception is if you want another boat. A boat becomes a part of us (for me, at least) like a child or a pet. Not for all of us, I understand, but for us it has been. If it is just a 'thing' for you, let her go. GO camping, or get a house, or a plane, or something that drives your passion. Kids will do that, incidentally, though I don't think you two are there yet. But as my wife said to me just this evening, which we have said many times, "We are just boat people." It is easy to say that, harder to really come to grips with it. At least it was for us.

Second, I would NEVER buy a boat without a survey unless it was dirt cheap such that the survey cost more than the boat. I bought Nixie (our Compaq 16) without a survey. But I know boats pretty well, maybe better than many surveyors. However, the cost of the survey would have been more than the boat and I know the key things to look for. DO your buyers? How many buyers do? Nah, even knowing what I know, I would never buy a boat of any magnitude without a survey. I am not saying that others wouldn't, or should or shouldn't, but I know a lot more about boats that the majority of people I meet and I would not. Take that for what its worth.

I hope you guys get out on your boat, and actually hope you do put the outboard on her. I don't care if you never raise the sails and use her as a motorboat to pull skiers. WHat is important is that you enjoy it, make it your passion, or find what is. But there are few things I have found more inspring than sitting on my boat, nothing but the wind in my face, and watching the sun go down at sea. For me, nothing else matters for that brief moment in time and I feel at peace. Of course, I am shortly brought back to reality with a, "Ok, Daddy, no green flash again... can we eat now!??"

Take care guys,

Brian

Re: Couldn't do it

Mate, go for a sail somewhere beautiful. Go for long enough to quiet your mind. I am not Yoda.

If you hate it. No problem. If you love it. Still no problem. :-D
