Greetings from the worst blogger of all time. Tomorrow is my survey and sea trial. I’ll make a bunch of posts documenting whats been going on, but…I am very close to having a boat.
I’ve looked at a lot of sailboats. I was set on owning a sailboat. I’ve been enrolled in classes, bought a book about knots, watched all kinds of sailing videos on youtube, you name it. The charm and opportunity of sailing free of reliance on purchased fuel and connection to the rest of the world felt like the right choice. Unfortunately, I don’t live in a book or a movie. I live within my income and debt. So, I have to work with what I’ve got. After seeing another disappointing tiny sailboat (if I sneezed in bed I’d have a concussion) my broker and boyfriend said for maybe the 100th time that I should check out a powerboat.
So fast forward to about 13 hours from now I will have a boat named “Si Yes Da” surveyed and hauled out. She’s a 1991 31ft Sea Ray Sundancer. Keeping my fingers crossed!
Recap of the process to follow. Yes, I do a lot of things out of order.
