WBs and Memorial Weekend

On Friday, the broker called to say that the buyer had accepted the boat so that deal didn't fall through as we had hoped. However, he did say that another WB owner that was leaving FL for Maine for the summer was considering selling. We drove to St Augustine Sat pm and stayed at Dad's house. We visited the WB which was anchored off Conch House on Sunday morning. The owner expected to decide for sure this summer so we are not holding our breath. We drove back to Vero afterward in time for a late lunch.

I also talked with the owner of another WB for sale in AL on Friday. He sent a lot of good pictures of the boat. The downside is this is an older WB. What to do?

Rejected, New Hope

Well, it was no surprise that we could not agree on a value for Ketos.

While dealing with that disappointment we got a call from the broker to tell us that the deal on another Whaleback might be falling apart. It is not as new as Ketos, but we are sure we could be quite happy on this one. The original owner outfitted her very nicely. Also, we know what the owner will take and the boat has completed survey. It is hard not to get our hopes up even though the current deal will probably go through.

This week has been an emotional roller coaster.

An offer

Well, we made an offer today on Ketos (4827WB). We are not too hopeful because the seller doesn't seem to be very motivated.

Wish us luck.
