While we wait…

Loading in Vietnam

Our new boat is shrink wrapped and chugging around the ports of China as the container ship holding her makes its leisurely (to us) way across an ocean eventually to land in Fort Lauderdale, FL. We have about 5 weeks until she arrives just in time for the Miami Boat Show. She will be displayed as part of our agreement when we purchased; the Seawind 1260 has been named Boat of the Year for her size by Cruising World so will likely be popular.

I’m afraid of all those people going on my boat.

I want to be the first to go below and check out all the spaces. I don’t want anything to get broken by looky-loo’s who have no intent on getting a cat or sailing or living aboard, who just touch buttons because they are there or think it’s ok for their kid to jump on the trampolines. I want the boat show to be over so I can wipe away all their prints and mark her as mine.

I’m waiting…but not patiently.
