Post I cried a little...

I've shed two tears over the past year. One was the day when I was riding in a coast guard boat after my boat had sunk. The second one was today when I handed the keys over to the new owner.

The boat looked so good on the trailer, that I kept on thinking that maybe I could repair it and keep on using it. A couple of times I actually thought of turning around and keeping it. On one hand I regret having effectivly given the boat away, on the other hand, I'm glad to have a down payment for a new boat. Well I guess it's a little too late to second guess things soooo...I guess that it's time to cut the cord.

I've narrowed the choices down to either a 26' Firehawk, or a 25' Warlock. The Firehawk is a new unrigged hull and the Warlock is a complete turn key package. Either one will be running close to a bill.

We currently prerfer the Firehawk, but the getcha is that it is more than had I wanted to spend. You guys may want to get a pool started on which one we end up with. It seems like every time I talk to somebody, they insist that I should do it differently. We've chainged our minds so many times that I'm starting to loose track of things.
