Yes, and that is a good thing for Jim

But I would like to say that this thread has been great. Especially because Jim has continued to post. Often we see threads with a sailor in "distress" getting a lot of advice, and then never hear the end of it.

But not this one, that has been great, and soon we will hear about Jim's adventures at sea

Re: Apparently I'm not meant to have a boat...

One thing I take away from this thread (which I think I already knew) is that if you have emergency repairs that must be done by a boat yard (reputable or not) during the summer season - it is going to take a long, long time for them to finish the work.

Given Jim's circumstances I would have likely chosen the same, slightly frustrating route.

Re: Apparently I'm not meant to have a boat...

Bubble, yes, I think it's basically time to shut this down.

Sorry it has dragged on for 39 pages! As was mentioned above, I wanted to keep it open so others could see what happened from start to finish. She's back in the water and seems to be running OK, so other than maybe an update or two over the next few weeks, I won't really be updating it any more.

I do need to thank everyone who participated, especially early on. Thank you for helping to buoy my spirits - that was huge. Of course, thank you for your technical knowledge too.

Re: Apparently I'm not meant to have a boat...

39 pages? I choose the setting that displays 100 posts per page. You haven't filled 3 yet. . By always choosing the View First Unread button, it takes me right to where I left off, then I don't have to endlessly update pages.

I bet some of us would like to hear how the shakedown goes.

Apparently you are meant to have a boat, repair bills and weird smells included.

Keep the thread till the fat lady sings and you get her home. Those who feel its enough can just pass by it. It has been a good thread.

Re: Apparently I'm not meant to have a boat...

At this point, I don't know Denise. I need to get in there and figure out what's going on. The HWH isn't a huge priority right now, though the idea of motor sailing to NJ without being able to take a warm shower isn't exactly thrilling for me.
