Good Afternoon from Sunny Florida…
Sure winter was here for a couple of weeks, but today 80* and sunny. I'll take it. I just thought I'd better get a note from my office to your desktop and catch you up the best I can. It's been a ride down here and we're enjoying every bit of it. Lot's of time to re-think, re-build, re-vamp and settle into a dream and watch it unfold in living color.
As you know by now, Pat and I are looking for another boat here in Florida and it has taken up more time then I thought I had on my hands. I sure wish things were simple, but I'm learning a lot about the business world and just how complicated things can get. I guess that comes with putting the years on. When I was a few years younger, I'd just "do it", and then make the decision right.
Now I'm maybe over thinking everything. So today, I've decided to just make it simple again. It's not worth all the headaches and sleepless nights. I love what I do. I will continue doing it. I will maintain my youthful joy and… Well, just "DO IT!"
In that light, Pat and I and Capt. Ron are heading to the east cost of Florida tomorrow and looking at a boat that we've got our eye on. She's real pretty and does come with some issues that we need to look very close at. But I remember when I met Pat, I came with some pretty big issues too. Seems to be working out after all these years, so I'm not afraid.
As you can see by the photo above, I've moved my office to a place that has no window and a great view. The man in the photo, right above my Bloody Mary, is concentrating on a hot bean bag game. There's 3 courts there on the sand and he's pretty good.
In any case, I'll let you know more about this boat as time passes. We should have everything in order by mid week next week. I want to blubber it all out know, alas I can not. We don't have a deal yet and heck, I don't know who reads all this stuff out there. But you'll be the second ones to know.
So keep everything you have crossed and lets just see this wonderful vessel not having BIG issues and we can slip into her with ease. I'm down here in Florida and I'm jonesing to get back on the water. Sailing other peoples boats has never been my favorite sport, but I'm at that point.
Keep in mind though, I'm still in business. If you want to go sailing in Fort Myers Beach, or take a sailing charter in Fort Myers Beach… Call me! If it's in the future, you will be able to be one of the first on the new vessel, or remember I have sailing friends down here. Capt. Dan aboard Star of Orion is running just fine. He's in and out all the time and I can hook you up, so drop me a line or give me a call. FantaSea Sailing is still the place to get in contact with the sailors down here, no matter if you are looking for a 1/2 day sail, or overnight sailing charters in Fort Myers Beach, I can hook you up.
Thanks for checking in on us and we'll be in touch after we take a look tomorrow.
I'll see you on the dock…
