Still for sale?

Wednesday, September 9th, 2009

Yes, Shanti is still for sale.

Since I’m super busy with work and family (the exact reasons I’m selling) and because I really love the boat and have been enjoying an occasional sail and the theraputic values of ongoing boat work, I’ve been very apathetic about any sort of salesmanship or listing effort, basically relying on word of mouth (and people stumbling across this blog).

Eventually, the boat and a new owner will come together. Happily for them, they will also get the benefit of the brand new North Direct #3 (100%) NorDac furling cruising jib I bought and installed this summer…

Took Charlotte out for her first sail at 3 months 1 day old. Front pack plus inflatable vest for mom, nervousness and north bay flat water cruising for skipper dad. Help from Uncle Aron and friends Bob and winemaker Aaron. Pictures to (maybe) follow.
