The Trigger has been Pulled...

No... the title has NOTHING to do with guns...

It is just an expression meaning I have Decided... To Go for it!

So two months ago, when I first saw this boat... wait a minute... it has only been two WEEKS? seems like so much longer.

Well there has been a lot of tossing and turning along the way, and a lot of do i? or Don't I? This is all SO new... I have been reading all I can on boats and their maintenance, researching comparable boats on the internet, how to inspect and what to look for on older boats, trying to decide if this was as good a deal as I was thinking it was. Trying to stay neutral is really hard, but I have read too many things about the hazards of letting your emotions take control when buying a boat...

So after all of the poking, prodding, testing, digging, tugging, tapping, deploying, furling, flaking, questioning, emailing, phone calls, texting, examining, reexamining, scouring over Marine surveys, soul searching and so on for every day of the past 2 weeks, I told my Yacht Broker, Sue, to pull the trigger on the deal. less than 24 hours later, after a sizable transfer of funds, and my signature on two pieces of paper, I now own a Yacht!

so, needless to say, I will be spending a lot of time in the near future, so many more pictures and stories to come... so stay tuned!
