A Sailboat

Filed under: General — pohodo @ 6:54 pm

Karen and I went down to the Miami Strictly Sail boat show back in February. We went down there to look around at some of the boats and dream about sailing away. We figure that new boats this year could possibly be good used boats in coming years.

I’ve always been pretty partial to monohulls, mostly because that’s pretty much all I’ve been exposed to. Yeah, yeah, I did a lot of sailing on Hobie Cats back in the day, but never on any kind of cruising boat. At any rate, we decided to check a couple of them out just to see what they’re all about. I think I’ve been converted!

We ran across the Manta 42 MKII and it’s just plain incredible. It’s truly amazing how much living space this thing has. Manta is one of the few manufacturers that builds a boat to be more or less cruising ready at delivery. It comes fully rigged with dingy davits and all. Of course, you need to upgrade some of the electronics and decide about A/C, water makers, etc., which can add quite a bit of expense.

So here’s what I’m thinking 0:-)… All I need is for some kind-hearted megamillionaire to take pity on me and help me out :). The Manta has a base price of only $359,950! heh. Add on a few extras and I’m only asking for a mere $400,000 – just daily interest earnings for some. For such a small amount of money for the extremely wealthy, I could disappear off into the sunset and live a dream.

It’d be great, I could put together a Web site about our travels and allow some rich and famous person an opportunity to live vicariously through the average, non-famous life I offer. Heck, stop on by at some of the exotic destinations and hang out with us – at least for a little while! 😉

Is this too much to ask? I guess that question is all relative. heh.
