"Solas" passed her survey and sea trial looking like a real beauty! 

Mike, her owner, was so generous with his experience and insights.  He had to fight back tears a couple of times and so did we.  All and all it was a very pleasant day on the water.

We have officially accepted her and are planning on the closing during the week of March 5th.  We will take her to Oriental, NC for some TLC and hope to have her home by our anniversary. 

When we look at these pictures, we can't believe that it is real.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Offer accepted! We are the proud new owners of the Cabo Rico 42 'Solas'. We have a few details to follow up on - like the survey, sea trial, final acceptance, etc, etc - but still, she is ours!

Her name will be 'SeaClearly'.

Too excited and nervous to type much so I will fill in details later. We must be crazy.

New boat in our future?

Despite the fact that we are probably way under-experienced and, maybe, entirely too stupid to own a large sailboat - we are putting an offer on a Cabo Rico 42. Stay tuned!
