Hi and thanks Dave,
You have a sharp looking boat there as well, the gel coat is almost blinding.
I'm with you on the whole economics thing.I wanted a boat that I could own instead of it owning me! I did surprise myself with how long I held out. It was becoming a sickness for me.Every evening I'd get home from work it was on the yachingworld site and looking for boat's. I'm just glad it's over!
I'm not sure if anyone else went through this but I seemed to develop a talent for seeing a good boat then immediately getting into a mental argument with myself and talking myself out of it. I can only imagine how bad this would be if I went for my dream boat,a BCC. I'm pretty sure it would go something like this....
The crowd starts to build around the dock and the seller turns to them and says...." He just made an offer on the boat. and then started punching himself in the face! he rolled off the dock there and you can hear him swearing underneath the cat over there.......no,no....there is only one person." something like that...till the police arrive anyway!.
Good suggestion on the name "Patience". It never even occurred to me. The whole boat naming thing seems to be an art form. I always planned on naming the boat after my departed Welsh Corgi, I am willing to bet that this boat will be less trouble and just as much fun as he was( any corgi owners will verify this I'm sure).
Dave, you will have to keep me updated on your planned Puget Sound trip.I would be interested in meeting like minded people. I always envied those smaller boat get-together's, you folks seem to have such a great time.
