Oh what a sad fate for Esther after all that sweat and $$ you put into her.
I am weeping with you. Can't you put a nice cover over her and wait till you Re-retire?
All the Best, Herb

Removed the link to craigslist, for some reason the add keeps getting flagged for removal. Sailboatlistings.com is working.

Cheers,

Dave

Really sorry to see you selling, Dave. Man, know how much time and effort you put into this beast. Too bad you can't keep for work break. Whoever DOES get this sample will surely inherit a nice First!

Esther was sold this morning. For the new owners I truly hope for their success. For me, the boat became the definition of "White Elephant", the result of life circumstance more than anything to do with the project itself.

But with everything that did get done there is a solid base for the new owners to build upon, and the boat comes with a parts and equipment list that is to be envied. And they are young, have rebuild experience, and the energy to finish the job!

That's it for me.

Signing off . . .
