We bought the boat and paid to have it moved. The previous owner was very generous and offered to split the moving costs. Neither of us had the time nor inclination to sail the boat far this blustery...

Shoe string! Got it. Yes, everything we do is shoestring. Due to budgetary restrictions, that's how we roll, or we would just be sitting at home watching TV.
