They say the two happiest days in a boater's life is the day he buys a boat...and the day he sells his boat.  Well, we just closed on our new boat in Sarasota, Florida.  So this is one of our happiest days.  Anybody want to go for making us really happy and buying Testa Dura???  Oh well...

Here she is:

Notice the striping?  For those who know me well, you will recognize that for 30 years we have put those exact strips (with the angle cut at the end and all) on all of our company trucks.  What are the odds the boat we would fall in love with had them?  Kind of a wierd coincidence, ya think???

The master stateroom

The guest stateroom.  OK Leo, Dad, John and Rob, I admit, I enlarged this one so you guys wouldn't worry!

So, next we get some minor repairs done, just to remind me she's a BOAT.  And then off to the boatyard so we can BOATT and add a hydraulic dinghy lift/swim platform.  Always remember, "Boating is Fun!"
