    Went for a sea trial this morning. Boat exceeded expectations. Signed the purchase agreement. Very happy! Thanks to all for your advice.

    Thanks everyone. I know the saying seatux, but I have never thought that way. Quite the opposite. Boating makes me happy and apparently it's good for you. According to a 2020 survey conducted by Impulse Research Corp. boaters are healthier and happier than their non-boating counterparts. https://www.discoverboating.com/resources/survey-says-boaters-are-happier. Here are some of the findings:

    Landlubbers have been hospitalized slightly more than boat owners (14 percent compared to 11 percent) and tend to be more overweight than their boating counterparts;

    More boat owners said their health is excellent or good (83 percent) than did non boat owners (77 percent)

    67 percent of boat owners said having a boat has contributed to their well-being;

    Boat owners experience greater self-esteem (+10 percent), ability to enjoy life (+9 percent) and a better sex life (+7 percent);

    Non boat owners are more prone to feeling useless (+8 percent), lonely (+7 percent), unhappy (+5 percent) and fatigued (+4 percent);

    Nearly two-thirds of boat owners said owning a boat has brought their family closer;

    Most boat owners said the benefits of owning a boat include being outdoors (89 percent), spending time on the water (85 percent), being able to unwind and leave pressures behind (79 percent) and finding tranquility (71 percent).

    I'm a Happy "Shamrock" Boat Owner now.

    Well said, and I couldn't agree with you more.
    I am getting closer to the day I will sell my Shamrock, and that will Not be a happy day for me.

    It's official. "New Day" is part of the family now. She will be transported to Maine by end of the week. Unfortunately, I will have to wait until next spring to launch. In the meantime, I plan to sit in her, play the sound of waves on my sound machine and dream of what's to be. Lol
