I purchased a sailboat, almost. Still owe $200 on the ship, and should be able to take care of that tomorrow. The biggest hurdle right now is going to be finding a slip and getting the boat to the slip. It’s a 28.5′ Pearson Triton Sloop, absolutely gorgeous. Problem is she’s only sitting pretty right now, not exactly moving pretty. The engine was pulled and needs to be replaced. Probably with an outboard for now. Most likely the boat will need to be towed into a slip. However, slips are not so easy to come by. Anyone have info on getting into a slip in Monterey Bay?
I’m dead tired, and embarrassed to be writing in such a sad state. Should of tackled this post last night right after I purchased the boat and sat on cloud 9 for a while. The previous owner had me over to his place so I could get a hot shower. We’ve been talking sailing ever since. He had so many great ideas for the boat before his plans changed. It’s been good comparing my future ideas with his past ideas. He’s gone as far as offering to help work on the boat when need be, and I’ll definitely be taking him up on the offer. I’ve never experienced purchasing anything and then becoming friends with the person I’m purchasing a thing from. But this is what’s happening. I really have no flow for writing right now. My coherency has been rearranged by the greener things in life, thanks to a little celebratory puff with the sailboats old owner. The stuff always steals sleep from me!
Right now I’m in maniac mood, covering the internet with post hoping to find a little help tackling the even bigger step of finding my new boat a home. Thanks for the support, pictures should be coming tomorrow!
