Conner’s drawing

September 21st, 2008

Just look at what Conner did! He is REALLY excited about going sailing!

MAYBE our 1st yacht!

September 21st, 2008

This is the 1st yacht we are looking at buying.

She is only 22 FT long.

She was built in 1972, which makes her just 1 year younger than I am! ;-)

She is in EXCELLENT condition!

She has in inboard Volvo 10HP diesel engine.

The model is a Westerly Cirrus 22.

If all goes well, we will see her next week Sunday, and take it from there.

We are all VERY excited to start this journey!
