Unhappy Sad day.

There is a saying that the happiest days of a boat owner is the day he buys his boat and the day he sells it.
Not true. I'm sad.. but the lady has to go.
It's in the classified.. but the day she will go won't really make me happy. I can't see my new baby sitting in the warehouse for months and months. Lot's of history and emotions goes with her. Hope she gets into a happy home.
I'll take her to KW, then that's it.
Wanna see an old man with tears.. Say hi at the end of the run.

We're sorry about that too Peter! Rob and I talked about how excited you were about your boat when we met you in April.

Take care of yourself....your health is the most important.

Sharp boat. I would add some cockpit, dash and cabin pix (if you have one). Good Luck.

Have you thought about a raffle? It's a tough time to sell.

Thanks guys and gals. (or may be there is only one gal. Hello Barb)
I got some interior pics, loading them up shortly.
It's a weard thing. I hope I can sell it... I can't do any "hard" boating for a while, and again. I also hope that it won't sell.
Hell of a thing.. huh ?..

(I have no clue about raffles.. so I think that's out., but thanks for the thought)

Contrary to what some folks are doing... a raffle of this kind without having a state license and a being done by a 501 c 3 is quite illegal. It is amazing what people will decide that they can do without any advice. I mean, wouldn't you see more raffles if anyone could do it? If there is a floating drawing date, a promise to return monies, or the holding of checks of any kind.... it's a scam. Real raffles commit to a drawing date, have a valid state license, and they don't renig if they don't sell "enough" tickets to cover their nut.

One wrong surf by the wrong person in the state AG's office and they are toast.

Honestly... wouldn't you see more?
