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.”
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…
