For a n umber of years, Sue and I have enjoyed sea kayaking when ever…
We bought a boat!
Well, We bought a new to us boat! It seems like a bit of a whirlwind from the time we first saw the boat on-line to signing the purchase document. We found a 2001 Searay 400 sedan bridge on the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland. The boat was only a two-owner boat and was in excellent condition with 900 hours on the Caterpillar 3126 engines. The boat has been heavily updated since new including a new generator, all new Furuno electronics, all new canvas and isinglass, and salon carpeting.
We flew down a few weeks ago to see the boat on a cold Saturday and looked at the boat and met with the broker. After looking at the boat, reviewing both the repair records since new, and the engine oil analysis since new, we made an offer a few days later. the offer was accepted, and we will move forward to have the boat surveyed and close the deal. We wait to have the in-water survey and sea trial until late March when it is a bit warmer in Maryland. Assuming all goes well, the plan is to bring the boat back to Marion in early July when the work schedule allows taking a week off to make the trip. The whole family is excited, and we will take you along on both the survey and the trip home. Keep watching for more.
