Trading up Dave, or getting out altogether ?

Dave,

Wow. Mixed emotions about this! Hope you are moving up to bigger and better things. Jackdaw and Sparrow are kindred spirits.

I have a feeling that ole Dave was really hankering for a bigger beast. Every time I see an F235 owner do these type of mods, they end up selling and moving to a larger boat when it's right. This has almost happened without fail, especially when the mods are cruising/big boat type additions.

Hoping this is the case and it's not something unfortunate. Always sad to see an active owner sell though it still comes as a bit of shock when they post the sale in such a matter of fact fashion.

BTW, Dave, it's ok to post the direct link to the ad if you want. No problem with that at all. I've actually had a new member join today just to look at more info on this boat.

Okay, today I was told by my wife that I am emotionally unstable and I was instructed NOT to sell the boat. What am I to say to that?! In my line of work, "Yes Ma'am" is all you can say. So Sparrow will remain in the family.

I was actually surprised at the response by the family about selling the boat . . . after I had advertised Sparrow for sale. Obviously I had not properly staffed this decision!

Cheers,

Dave

Classic. Did you actually try and sell it with out telling her? Man, that takes some serious brass! ;^)
