Afloat at last

A quick update!

Long Island, New York.

Who would have guessed we'd find a boat in New York. It's been lots of work chasing after boats in Florida, St Martin, Dominican Republic, Georgia, Florida, and finally we've struck gold here in New York.

The good news is we'll be sailing around the Statue of Liberty very soon. The bad news is it's freezing cold.

The new boat will be named "Pacifica" and is a PDQ 36. That's 36 feet long by 18 feet wide. Two legitimate queen beds, one double bed, full galley, navigation station with arm chair, and dinner seating for 6-8 inside, bathroom with separate shower, lots of storage, upright refrigerator, huge freezer and lots of storage. Then we go outside to the roomy cockpit with 10 foot raised bench across the back, two captains on pedestals, hard Bimini enc losable on three side then head forward to lay on the trampolines to soak up some sun (when we find some warm weather). All the while the boat remains nice and flat on it's two hulls, has a stack pack for the main, furling 135% genoa, spinnaker, twin anchors, one power windlass and one manual. A nice set up.

Hoping to get familiar with the boat for a week or so and then head south as soon as possible to find warmer weather.
