The boat did great for its maiden voyage to its new home in Port Canaveral. There was a couple small issues while underway but nothing I wasn't able to take care of on the fly. I have a bunch of pictures and story to share but I'm so exhausted from the trip I don't have the energy to share it all right now.

Hope you're enjoying the Space Coast. We have a house down there and hope to pick up a 404 and keep her at Harbortown - still looking for the right one but fingers crossed the wait won't be a long one.

Hello anothernewb. WOW - what a great string of msgs., experiences, lessons, etc. I realize I am reading a story that is years old, but you provided a lot of information and training through this entire thing. I hope you are still out there, boating and looking at this forum, but have not seen anything from you since Aug. '16. I just have to ask......how did this all turn out? Great Investment or horrible decision? Either way....KUDO's to you. :clap:

It's always nice when a poster follows up on the story. Definitely would like to know the ending.
