LOL, so true! It was probably a silly question. Maybe I just needed
to talk about the fact that I'm going to sell it, since it's such a
beautiful boat and not 100% easy to part with.
Those are great comments, Alan. When I'm looking at a boat, and the
owner says "Well, <insert issue here> needs to be repaired, but it will
only take ten minutes," I always think "Yeah, right, so you didn't do
it because...you don't have a spare ten minutes?" (Real answer: It
would take hours, days, or weeks, and I can't be bothered. Please buy
this boat and make it YOUR problem.") That's why I haven't officially
put my boat up for sale yet - I'm finishing up a few "ten minute"
projects before I do so, and it will probably be a couple of weeks
before I do so. Can you tell I'm an oldest child? (I have to take
I do have it on sturdy stands with a good ladder, but I agree that
boats on the hard are always a bit creepy feeling.
And oh do I understand the break required between major boat hunting
excursions! I was shopping from northern Minnesota, and I can't tell
you how many trips (long ones!) I made to look at what ultimately
turned out to be junky boats. Talk about an emotional roller coaster.
Of course then I'd have to take a break and I'm sure that's when all
the good boats came up <laugh> That's why I always willing to look at
a local (or semi-local) boat for a fellow shopper, if I can save them
20+ hours of driving.
Thanks again for your input, and I hope your boat search bears fruit
