Tim, not sure if you got my response to your input on my electric question but wanted to thank you. That was the "money" answer and saved me a lot of time. Able to toggle again and I have lived aboard through six winters now so find it import to distribute the power when I run multiple heating sources .
Hi Tim and thank you for the friend request. I stand corrected and yes I did buy Mike Watson's 35. Picked it up in Lake Michigan and drove it around "The Mitten" to Detroit without a hitch. Plowed through some 5-6 footers like it was a pond.. what a great well maintained boat. I am amazed that someone did not snatch this up quickly.
Turns out I'm typing from Vashon Island (in fact, Maury Island, connected to Vashon), right now. We got a beach place out here, and it's consuming the time I could otherwise spend on the boat -- hence the decision to sell.
Like the market for Sportsman, the market for island property is small -- more volatile! I can hear your cousin's pain -- prices out here either rise sharply, drop sharply.. or do nothing for long periods. Right now, prices are doing better, but lagging Seattle. (Well, nearly everywhere is lagging Seattle's Amazon-fueled inflation!)
That is my stepdaughter tim. I also have a 17 month old son that LOVES the boat already. I am also mechanic, and I still love the boats ive owned, so if I can work on them amd still love them, itll never change. This boat is all new to me, butill figure it out. I love the water, and boating. I have my whole life. My sanctuary is the barnegat bay here on the jersey shore :)
Now I get to do it woth what has beem my dream boat for many many years :)
I still cant believe I own the boat. Its incredible
Tim, to say I'm humbled by your note is an major understatement. I cannot thank you enough for your feedback and your very kind, encouraging words..
