    If you sell your boat, and lose your shirt, be glad you don't end up altogether naked.

    I see that Aslan is off market. If there was a deal I hope it was satisfactory to all involved.

Salvers raised it and departed for FL 50 hours later under its own power. 6 or 8-71s. Incredible. Half that time was getting rid of all those pales of oil. Probably had 10 tons of waterlogged everything.
    Friends from our marina in Ft Myers pre-Ian bought a new to them boat and were docked at Labelle Yacht Club... Neighbor boat semi-exploded, caught fire in the slip and the facing side of their boat was severely trashed - At a level that requires water-line up rebuild. Their insurance tried to tell them it's "a buff and paint job". Last report it's turned into a court battle. Seriously, they had the boat a month and it was in beautiful near-new condition prior.

I also felt the boat was overpriced, but I let the 'expert' broker do his thing. After all, I'm not in a hurry. It's just time to move on, but not cut'n run while I still enjoy the tinkering.

    So, Aslan is for sale by owner to anyone who has not contacted my broker beginning March 1st. The original price of $225K was a nice thought, but just that. The price is $180K, buyer pays closing costs and, of course, subject to sea trial with refundable deposit. Someone who wants to live dangerously and take her as-is-where-is might have my ear. Where she is is in Charleston, SC and on the move with grandkids this summer. Nut jobs now welcome--some restrictions apply.

    My HOF handle is my contact. No PMs, please.

    Clarksons boat will be sold for what I call a token payment to become the new caretaker. I think heíll get a decent price based on condition but not exactly what he is hoping for. Hopefully the new caretaker will keep in nice. Iíve sunk some big bucks on my 46. Some repairs, a lot of PM, and some nice upgrades. Not getting any of that back and donít need to. Grabbing memories.
    I have lost money on every boat I've ever owned. I look at it as boating tuition. I still haven't lost as much a a 4 year college degree costs nowadays.
