Blog #2: It’s All About the Boat

We are tracking down boats now. It is not easy to find the right one for the right price.

We found a few boats – some perfect including perfectly expensive – and some boats a lot cheaper, but we aren’t buying a used car and I can’t return if it isn’t working out.

What exactly is the right one?

We want one that is fast, fast and fast. When I tell people this they say “You mean so you can get there in 40 days instead of 45 days.”

Ha ha.

Speed is particularly important when we’re about to be swallowed by a 20 foot wave crashing down on us.

My brother asked me about sharks and if one could get into the boat because we sit so low on the water. I told him that wouldn’t happen.

He asked me about being hit by a whale and sinking the boat. I told him that wouldn’t happen.

He asked about being hit by a freighter in the shipping lanes. I told him that wouldn’t happen.

He asked me about rogue waves.

And I told him…now that could happen!

Stay tuned. I think we’re¬†minutes away from choosing our boat…
