Was having my morning coffee and dinghy cruise when I came upon the Lost Soul slipped in the America Cup Harbor.

Is it in for maintenance ?, our they doing something for L&A ?? or did BB finally sell her ???, I thought she was listed at one time

BB did sell the Lost Soul. They are currently building a first of it's kind Shannon and following the progress in L&A.

Ya know, I could just about swap my condo for that boat. Think I could singlehand her?:laugher FWIW, the seller paid Bob a LOT more than what he's now asking, according to Bob.

Did I see somewhere that Bob's new (and not yet wet) Shannon is already for sale too? Or maybe I read that you can you purchase a share of the new boat. Anybody else see this "news"?

Funny, I remember when I subscribed to L&A.

I distinctly remember the issue where Bob announced that he had sold Lost Sole (he got an offer that he couldn't refuse), and was now looking for a new boat. IN THAT SAME ISSUE there was a full page ad, presumably taken out by the new owner, announcing that Lost Soul was for sale.:rolleyes:

In the next exciting issue, there was an article by Bob telling how he had met Walter Shultz, owner of the Shultz Boat Company (builder of Shannon Yachts), and that for a $1 deposit, Shannon was going to custom build a boat for Bob. This boat would enter the Shannon line as the Shannon 52 Global (MSRP $1,262,500). I wondered what the other considerations of the contract were (perhaps Bob's soul?), but not enough to renew my subscription. The full page ad for Lost Sole was in that issue too. That was well over a year ago...

Here it is... on Page 80 of the online version of L&A;
Due to the slowdown in the economy, here is the chance to own a 25-50% share of this great vessel. The plan is for the boat to spend the first couple of seasons in the Caribbean and New England, and after the boat show circuit is completed, who knows? Retail value of the boat $1.5M 1/4 share $275K

I've met bob & jody a couple of times.
Not that I'm anything special, but something never did sit right. I'm not perfect, ask any one of my ex-wives, they'll tell you in no uncertain terms. I'm not jealous, whatever blows your skirt up, eh?

Look, when this whole lost soul refit came about, I smelt sumpin'.

I've been a vendor, I know cost structure and advertising rates and a lil about marketing.
I know that an A/C system, a set of sails, a boom,washer/dryer, what ever product you're pushin', even with a couple of techs to install said pieces parts is REAL cheap in exchange for a writeup in a mag and residual exposure.

Imagine my non surprise when less than a season after lost soul was completely done over the announcement that she was for sale was posted. Go figure.

I said then that this pair made conchyjoe look like a piker.

For that, I was told that I suffered from a rectal/cranial insertion, that I had no idea what i was talking about, and that I should really go listen to the jimmy buffett wannabe guy they have a lovefest with.
whatever.

Moving on, again, it was no surprise that they were gonna build a custom shannon-like tub and cruise the world.
hey, it was all bob&jodys, no mistake about that.
gimme a friggin' break.
Now its nothing more than a timeshare. toldya.
if it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck....

no, I don't wonder why I don't hang around anymore.

Before we rake Bob across the Internet, there are a few reasons for the latest news. Jodi has a serious illness for which she is recovering from. I believe the "C" word is involved. Like a great husband, Bob stood by Jodi's side. As we all know, any type of medical care is exorbitantly expensive. Not sure if Bob health insurance covered most of the expenses. I doubt it. With her health in jeopardy, the new Shannon was put on hold. Jodi health came first. From what I last heard she is recovering but not well enough for the sailing that they want to do. Tying up a million dollar boat to a dock is not what this boat was built to do. The concept of a timeshare in a boat is not new. I think Bob is trying to recover some of the expenses of this yatch while at the same time, preserve some time on it when they can. I cannot blame the guy.

Sorry, I don't want to come across as kicking Bob, especially when he and Jodi may be down. I did, however, find it "fishy" that he announced the sale of the boat in the mag, and an ad for the boat for sale was in the same issue.
