Kevin,
 My wife loves your wife's commentary, especially the Scotland trip part. I took my wife on a "outing" to go see a new outboard motor last weekend. Good luck with selling Tetra and congrats on the new boat, she looks great!

just don't say i didn't warn you about going to the Annapolis Boat Show! Heck just going to Annapolis can be dangerous, who needs a boat show!

Well we certainly feel better knowing others swallowed the hook and leader, it's great aint it! Congrats to you guys. Make sure you bring tons of pics to CBMWG 2.0  She looks beautiful.  :)

  For the record, I've been to Annapolis many times and not once came home with a boat. Maine Boatbuilders Show...now that's another story!
  Kevin and Lesa's boat is just perfect, having been one of the early morning Tequila imbibers to celebrate the new boat. It's also nice that they're  search for the perfect boat has ended, until the time they get the bug to move up again at which time I will by the Cape Dory! If I don't end up with a Flicka first!

Whoa Bro Bob....it's not the point that ya come home with a boat from Annapolis, been there many times with no boat in tow, though last time we kinda did, it's that you get the want another boat bug or solidify that desire! Nuthin wrong with that, jus sayin!

As far as the Flicka, ya might wanna talk to PeterG bout that Orion! IMHO one of the most beautiful boats ever built, though the Flicka is no slouch for looks either! You're not going to go wrong with either, just be aware that once you move to such boats you will really need that 16 as well! We can certainly, at CBMWG 2.0, help you towards an early demise secondary to Admiral Linda having you walk the plank, meanwhile we are so excited for Kevin and Lesa!

Having a boat that has standing headroom and enclosed head has changed Susan's desire (mine too) to cruise and getting the 16 has changed her comfort level about captaining. (Is that a word?) Susan even helped the wife of the fellow we got the 16 from, who was trying to get his wife into sailing with little success as it was simply too small for her comfort level, understand the advantage of that bigger boat to just enjoy being aboard. They just got a Catalina 30! Say the word and I'll turn Susan loose with Linda!

 No prob, Mas. As to the Flicka, there is a local neglected one who I hope is looking for a home. If it happens, fine. If not, fine also...I love my 23.
 I don't think even Susan would make much progress changing Linda's mind. Tough Austrian roots.

That would be so cool if a Flicka came into your life! I loved No Mas, If it was just me, she would still be mine. Having Interlude however has oped my eyes for the dreams of distant horizons. We have different situations and it was simply time to do what we did, as at our age time is not or friend. Linda will never have her mind changed by anyone else, none of us will, she can only be placed in a position to understand a different way of looking at something. That's all Susan did with Sandy, the wife of the previous 16 owner. Ya never know! What we do know is that a cold (or even warm) Guiness is calling our names! We have to finish sorting out those dues!

Well so we don't stray too far from topic....is Deliverance now home for Kevin and Lesa? Dory's are just wonderful boats. Since it aint a Compac this will also cause some fee recalculations. I do not envy your job! another reason to get all together for CBMWG 2.0 so we can sort all of this out, heck you may even have another boat by then........hmmm.....is that conflict of interest when someone in charge of fees has to charge themselves!  :)

Thanks for the tour of your new "ride".  Digging the new boat and John Frinzi playing in the background at the end! 

She looks to be in pretty nice shape and I know you'll be making her even better.  :)

which will totally confuse the fee structure! Hmmm.....a CPYOA administrator without a Compac.....you will just have to get that 16 then.

For what it's worth for any folks looking to move up but keep it trailerable/transportable, barely, there more than likely will be a PSC Dana 24 for sale in the near future not far from our marina. It's an older one, but like all PSC's, well built and will make someone a sturdy, little, go anywhere boat.

Meanwhile Kevin have much fun planning those new horizons with your Cape Dory!

Whyith doth thou speakest thus? Doth the thought of yon Dana changeth thy thinking?

Ironically her name be Renaissance thus thou mayest proceed with such prose.

Alright back to topic..... so Kevin Deliverance has become Dorothea? Was it the sound of dueling banjos that caused the change!?  :)  What significance does her new name have?

Ahhh...Renaissance. Never been a band like that since. Saw them eons ago at Le Garage on LBI waaaaay back in the day. So close to Annie Haslam, I could have....could have....ah..er...I had good seats! I was instantly in love....and still love their music.
Oh, what were we talking about??
