    Lusting on Yachtworld

    Half price for a 13 year old boat? Offer $90 and you're probably a boat owner. I like the boat. The vee berth likely only sleeps one actual human and some pillows comfortably, as it is quite narrow, reflecting the beam of the boat, and no way there is room for two sets of feet at the foot of the bunk. The settees look comfy, and it likely a fine place to entertain another couple before they go back to their own boat.

    I'm sure the Jesuits knew better than the Quakers who taught me.

    I was taught podex, as in podex perfectum es, but that either would do.

    I'd like to thank the previous owner for...

    I'd like to thank the PO for building the boat to a fine standard, then never trying to maintain anything on the boat himself, leaving it to the pros at one of the best, maybe THE best yard, in New England. Boat came with basically no issues. He even left Bermuda and NS/Newfie charts aboard. Thanks George!

    Oh, that's sooo funny? A 10,000 square foot cottage??? They don't come that small.

    I will tell you this: at 64, my wife would not camp on an H-boat for money or for love. She did 2 Bermuda returns on the SW-42, that was a nice sized boat for us, actually has the interior volume of a modern 36'-er, but well laid out. Oddly, Restive is actually a little easier to handle than Sparky. Beth prefers the sailboat to the house. She'd move aboard if I were willing to retire.

    Retirement Planning

    So sorry BFM, don't give up hope. IB's outcome was actually sub-optimal, as he ended up sailing with a Dickweed after all of that work and effort. Bryan, I suspect that Keith is on a similar program to me. He's an owner and founder of the business. In my case, the work is a lot of fun, pays absurdly well, and if I don't have this office I'm nothing but Beth's bitch. I also never really wanted to cruise full time, as I have another life in the mountains. Headed to the Kootenays this week for 6 days of Heliskiing, just spent most of 3 weeks in Taos getting in shape. I'm 65 and still doing deals with 30-35 year producing lives.

    Retirement Planning

    Y'all have clearly put a lot of thought into this. I haven't, so won't presume to comment other than to say it's a pretty good read. This is a financially literate bunch.

    A boat called a Gladiator would seem a perfect choice if you have a son named Timmy..

    ski season 2020

    18" yesterday, nother 10" today. Gonna ski tamale. Taos is just fine. Spent the afternoon with the house guide. Solid fun. Leave Thursday for a week of helicopter in the Kootenays. Starting to like this "skiing" stuff.

    No worries. I'm functionally illiterate, but have somehow muddled through.
