Still Hanging in There for Impound Auction

The suspense has not exactly been killing me but I am feeling the effects of several flesh wounds.  As I reported earlier there is an auction for impounded boats at the local marina.  At this point I am intending to attend.  There may not be two nickles in my pocket to rub together.  Isn’t poverty wonderful?

I have continued to do research on the Columbia 22 and I like what I have found.  Many thanks to the Columbia 22 group on Yahoo! for answering my questions.  This process is a little like running an inlet on the Jersey Shore.  There’s nothing like local knowledge.

Should I actually end up with a sailboat out of this I will be blogging and possibly doing a video podcast about the restoration and general commisioning of the boat.  If not then I may go back to my original thought of building a sailboat with similar media coverage.  The idea of putting my mug in front of a camera in a room full of dangerous tools or on a boat with lots of unforgiving water underneath is kind of scary.

My postings have been delayed a bit this week because of server problems.  Both of my sites were down for a day.  They are once again afloat on the information super tideway so keep on dropping by for a gam.  If you enjoy these pages please consider helping to defray my costs and support the directon I just outlined.  Click on one of my ads and patronize these fine merchants or use the PayPal button near the bottom of the sidebar to give a small donation.  Just a few dollars is appreciated in a big way.

  1. hang in there. poverty is not all it’s cracked up to be but anyone with the desire and gumption to acquire and renovate an old boat can find a way to do so. Watch the auctions on ebay, there are some real bargains. building from scratch will be a lot more expense than refitting a classic, but the rewards would no doubt be great. best of luck.
