Zippey has moved on...for now

With both joy and sadness I report that my beloved zzZippety Doo Dah has moved on. I acquired a Lancer 36 for a killer deal that I will be able to take the family cruising on. While physically distant I am still Zippey's registered owner. A friend has taken her a couple hours away to sail on with his family. I know Zippey will be well cherished by them.

Here she is in her new home

Good to know the new home when a loved Boat is gone. Looks better taken care of than the power boat behind her.

Yeah....you may want to rethink that part...

Re: Zippey has moved on...for now

Hey, how close are your friends sailing it to Seattle? Still want to try to get someone in that area to take the Small Craft Advisor guys out for a ride to do an article on our boats.

Real close. He could get it into Elliot Bay in 2 hours.

Actually I am surprised he has not gotten on this forum yet. He has been doing a bunch of great things to the boat that he should post here.
