Follower #1: When is Lezlie going to get another boat, and do something worth reading about?
Follower #2: It will be any day now. You know she must be having withdrawals.
Follower #1: Yeah, it's been what... nearly a month since she got off the boat. LOL
The other day, I was perusing Craigslist, and I found a 1980 Grampian 26 for sale here in Key West. I did like the layout of the Grampian I owned, and this one has a stove! The price was right, so I sent an email to inquire about it, and gave my phone number. The owner, Marty, called me, and we talked for a long time. She was excited that I knew what 'haul-out' meant, and that I was a former Grampian owner. The boat is on-the-hard in a boatyard, located in Stock Island, just north of Key West.
Yesterday, I went to look at the boat. I fell in love with it... did I say it has a stove! It does need some work, but, I think I can do most of it myself. I will be able to live on it in the boatyard while I work on her.
The ad said she was built in 1980, but the numbers on the transom, say differently (GRM266551273).
I am very excited. She will get a good sanding and bottom paint first thing. Her name is Capsicum. Not sure if I'll change it or not, but I'm sure some of you think it is a more appropriate name than The Flatulence. Right Stan? :-)
