Well, it’s Sunday May 8th – Just 53 days till “blastoff”. Close enough to begin making Elizabeth a little nervous. We are progressing fairly well with getting rid of most of the “stuff” that will not accompany us to our new home. Sold the Nissan, finishing a few small repairs on the BMW before putting it on the market and have an interested party for the truck. We will keep the Hyundai until the last-minute and us it for the boat hunt.
I don’t think we have mentioned officially that we will be shopping for a Performance Cruising Gemini 105Mc Catamaran to be our next home. Probably a 2006 to 2010 model will fit the bill. Hopefully we can find a knowledgable, caring former cruiser or liveaboard who loves their boat as much as we plan on loving her when she is ours. We are currently lurking on many web sites searching for possibilities and filling up a spreadsheet with all the names, addresses and equipment lists. We have looked at a couple of boats already, and one has gone onto the short list. We are bracing ourselves for lots of driving and overnight stays in seedy motels till we stumble upon the “perfect” choice.
We will start more regular posts as we get even closer to D-Day (July 1st) and have something actually interesting to write about. Until then, thanks for taking the time to read this post and stay tuned for updates.
