    I'm officially out of boating - closed yesterday. Yes, it feels "weird". Not really sure what comes next, hope to be back out on the water soon in some way.

    Congrats... Always wonder about those who buy without survey - hope they at least sea trialed it.

    I sold my CY about a month ago, and am just back on the water with a Meridian SB. That month was "awkward".....it was weird going to a beautiful 50' slip - with just our Whaler in it.

    My wife said I was real PITA (I didn't notice) but everything is good again.

    Best wishes...

    We did bring it up to use here, then I had to replace a motor - after replacing the canvas and electronics. While it was out for the motor, it got fresh bottom paint and a buff. It went back together with new exhaust. We had a great family trip to Block for the 4th. The boat was looking and running at its best and is worth about 10k more up here than in fla. So......it just made sense to sell now instead of shipping it back. We're now ready for "whatever comes next" but just not 100% sure what that is yet

    I hear you. I almost did the same once. We go back & forth on go bigger or stay since we have such little time to use it? On one hand we feel if the boat was bigger we'd use it more. On the other hand we know the kids sports schedules aren't getting easier for at least a couple years. It's kinda like the chicken or the egg quandary. Goid luck with "whatever comes next"!
