Wow!! I just discovered this BLOG was still up and running. SORRY
A very nice couple pulled up to the store towing small trailer full of boat gear, sails, water maker etc. etc. With every purchase I make, I always try to get THE STORY of why the boat gear is for sale. And boy I've heard thousands of them. Seems this couple was towing their extremely high tech cruising trimaran from California to Florida. Somewhere on the Interstate highway in the middle of the USA they stopped for a road construction project. Seems the driver of the BIG RIG behind them had fallen asleep and rear ended their boat and pushed the boat and trailer twenty feet into the 30 foot motor home they were driving. It was a miracle that they weren't killed? They were OK but their $100K plus yacht, I think they called it a Contour trimaran, was now an accordion !!! Have a great weekend. Ernie P.S. We've got all the sails off the above boat.
