These were just the high ticket items. But now I know the stuff is new. Our boat is ouor hoje away from home every weekend for almost 6 months. It is also quite time my wife and I have together we dont get much of during the work week. We take long vacations (NYC last year) Mytric this year on her. My wife, my friends, and my employees think I am crazy in February as I am out there lack Nanuck of the North working on her so when the time comes to sail we can just do it.
