Sea Trial

"Let's go now!" says Connie. We let the broker know we would be putting together an offer and arranged flights to San Diego from Seattle.  When Connie saw the boat she loved it so we took it on a shakedown cruise.  We brought along a surveyor, the owner, the owner's broker, and my broker.  A whole passel of people and a sunny day. We found wind just off of Point Loma and the boat picked up her heels and sailed beautifully.  Solid on deck, she seemed like she just wanted to keep on going.

We had a quick conference on the foredeck and decided to haul her out that very afternoon to do a hull survey.  Dennis, the owner, piloted her to the ways and we got the travelift in place.  He was great in that he loved that boat and was a fountain of information.  I tried to take it all in while maintaining some objectivity.
