[sorry to thread-jack]
Michael, where are you now?
time to sh*t or get off the pot.
I'm selling the stink pot....say good bye to the powerboat,
hello sailboat,,,,,,I have missed you..

Selling and moving out of a loved boat always brings out a lot of emotion; I know this, being now on my tenth boat. However hard it is to see her head off in the hands of a new owner, the impact is lessened by the growth of new possibilities.
I wish you well in your move, and with the adventure of finding a new mistress.

Hey there my little Hoggette,
Sad day for you eh ?
I confess I was thinking how good it would have been to sail down from HHI to Florida. Time is a bugger though. Would have been a fun trip.
Think on the bright side though.... unlike poor old Still you get to keep your hookers.
Salute to you Captain Goodvibes.

|midnightsailor||The boat may go but the memories stay with you. I have been through at least 7 boats and it never got easier sending each and everyone of them off with a new skipper, but I still have the memories of them all, some better than others. I will always have a specieal place in my heart for my Ranger 23"Blue SKies" and my Contest 29 "Artemis" is still looking for a new skipper, but I am happy as a clam living aboard my new to me Freedom 33 "SEASOP" AS the saying goes , the two happiest days in a sailors life the day he gets his boat and the day he sells it (or somthing like that!) So cherish the memories and good luck and have fun finding your next one. Rick|

Thanks everyone for the posts....
Jacky, get on down to SEaside and I'll buy you a beer, cap'n...
DJ, that's some excellent advice. The keepsake from the boat that I've decided to keep is the.... keel...
Valiente and Dan: We're right on the water on the Panhandle. The problem with moving her is the time it would take. If the winds and weather were perfect, it would be a nine-day jaunt. In reality, it would be a quick passage in two weeks.
The fact of the matter is that we're out-growing her. We're going to move up to a 34 or perhaps a 36. In fact, we're looking at a C-36, just like MikeinLA. Mike, that's a funny story....
ONe final note: Bubb2 (Mike) offered to help me move her a while back. He's a professional delivery captain with a lot of passages under his belt. Now get this: he was going to help me move my boat for next to nothing, and he was dead serious about it. That guy has a heart of gold. Here's to you, Mike....
Anyway, thanks for all the thoughts. You all are wonderful. Just spoke to the buyer. The sea trial is scheduled for 10:00 a.m., just after high tide. Thought I would take her north out of Skull Creek, head out Port Royal Sound to the Atlantic, and then bring her on home.
Thanks again, everyone.

|MC1||I just couldn't do it. Wonder how much it'd cost to have it trucked over land . . . Alberts Marine Svc/Transport in Melbourn Fl transported mine for a great price (321) 724-9520 (otherwise, no affiliation). Since you'd be generally headed their way, they might be able to swing by on a return trip and give you a price break - might be worth a call at least.|
