Steady as she goes................

When DW and I first hatched our plan to run away
to Margaritaville, I told her one thing was not
subject to negotiation. I had to have a big boat on
big water. Otherwise I was not going.

Next winter is officially the start of snowbirding, so I have about 9 months to do that voodoo that I do so
well . At the moment, I do not have the resources
(got the dream but not the dollars). However, I have
several ideas on how to get it done and assume that
creativity will prevail once again. I have been doing so much with so little for so long, pretty soon I will
be qualified to do almost anything with nothing

Obviously I will report the results and how I did it.

JG,

Exactly how big is a "big boat" anyway?

Are we talking needing tugs to dock it or what?

As long as it can fit in the bathtub with JG, it should be fine.

This is what we are taking this summer. Is this big enough?

You know, I was going to say the same thing but I decided I'd hit my daily John Galt Harrassment Quotient.

Thanks for taking up the slack Mikey...

Yeah . . . thanks Mikey. I'm afraid I exceded my annual John Galt Harrassment Quotient sometime in February. Normally John doesn't mind the ribbing, but I notice even he is ignoring me.

Hey, that should have been "fits in the bathtub with John Galt's ego" Anyway, "big" is pretty vague
in any venue. I'm thinking about 24 -25 feet.
Big enough to overnight but still trailerable if you
have a "manly" vehicle And, I don't need to hire a crew either.
