Just wanted to share the good new. I had an offer accepted on one of the boats I was looking at. She's a Ted Brewer extended stern Ingenue ketch by the name of Madrigal, currently on the hard in Eliot, ME.... I actually haven't gotten to lay eyes on her yet but have spent several hours on the phone with the broker who is very knowledgable about the boat and I'm fairly certain I understand her true condition/extent of work that she needs.
The survey will be in about two weeks and with any luck I'll be live-aboard on the hard, while I work on her, by the first week of April... weather pending of course... I'll keep you all posted and do a photo blog of the work once I get on board.
Thanks again to all those who have provided me with sanity checks, helpfull hints, and a guiding hand along the way!
