Well after last year's fiasco, I waited to tell the news.... We sold the boat & are closing tomorrow June 20th. It's so hard not to get emotional... we love our boat, love our boating friends & the whole scene, but it's time.
I guess we should consider ourselves lucky in this economy, (they paid our price) but it is truly bittersweet. I hope the new owners will give her the TLC that we did & have at least as many happy times as we did.

Now for a question?.... our dock mates & boating friends want us to stay over on their boats, & continue to be at the marina every weekend.
We would love nothing better, but "mooching" is not our style.
How can we tell them that we won't be staying over, or taking trips with them without hurting their feelings?
It's only a 45 min drive to the marina, so we can meet on occasion, but they want us there every weekend, just like old times.

Sunny,
Nothing wrong with stating it the way you posted it, I too would feel the same way.

As a boater you know the costs, so with that said, if you would really like to hang with them, tell them you want to split the costs, food, beer, gas, etc.

You're right of course Walter. It goes without saying that we would split costs. Actually, it's probably my Italian food that they'll
miss! But then again, maybe they won't have such problems keeping their weights down. ;o)

So you're all done with the Boating life?
I was in the midst of seriously planning a trip down to Seneca Falls somtime in August if I can recoup from the Fuel expense of the upcoming one next week.

Oh gosh no, I don't think we'll ever be totally done, boat or no boat.
Tang, we've over nighted at SF several times. You've got to eat at Henry B's! $$$$ or lunch at Zuzus. All of the Admirals that I know
just adore SF. Hey, it's the home of the Women's Hall of Fame!! (nice little shops too)

We've been offered an unlimited time to clean out the dock box etc. The marina owner has told us we are always welcome & since we aren't recovering slip fees for the season, we may just stick a dingy in there!

What was the Fiasco that made the final decision?

Well I hope all goes well, and maybe this will only be temporary. True friends will always have an open door.

"What was the Fiasco that made the final decision?"

Last Fall we had the boat sold & the deal fell through at the 11th hr, after we had spent days cleaning her out. Had to lug all of the stuff back there!
Closing went well today. It's really gone.

We have made the best friends ever through boating, and plan on keeping them forever.

Ah, The "BFF" syndrome. ;). Is there such a thing? And are you sure you want it to be a "forever" proposition. I mean, look at Andy and Mel...he wished, he got. Ducks are not easy to get off.

SIb, haven't you learned anything from these forums? You paste their beaks together with Orange Sauce right after the prenup.
This done, the Duck is rendered quackless, assuring it's mate certain bliss.

I've tried to go boatless and for a while, it works. Then you go into withdrawal. Who knows, your next "yot" might be a bowrider!

Bill, it's funny but when we bought the Carver all I was looking for was a little boat to fish from, nothing fancy. I LOVE to fish!
We were lured by the size & creature comforts of the boat and have gotten a lot of pleasure out of it. Well we're getting older & an Express just wasn't doing it for us anymore, no matter what Pascal said about the mid cleat spring for docking, it didn't work forme because I couldn't get to it!
Anyway, we looked at a 356 today, I loved the boat, but man did it feel high!!! I was almost getting dizzy from the helm after being used to the Express. Yes, I guess we need a breather for a while, unless Bob wants to take us out.
