I didn't want to be too splashy extravagant. This one makes a big enough splash as it is. :pun:
BTW, negotiations have hit a little snag at this point. The owner is taking some ridiculous "business" trip and his rep doesn't have the stripes to make most decisions for him.
So we wait but it isn't really boating season here anyway. :disappointed:

So the deal is officially OFF.
Just couldn't come to terms with a few last minute attempts to add to the rather high costs for this jewel.
I was almost ready to hire the flatbed truck to bring her to our good waters but as "they" say, there are more fish in the sea.

So?

Where did you stash the loot, or have you "blown" it all on slow-living and low-times? :laugh: :flee:

Yeah, nice but I'm not a "rag" sailor. The rag sailors call us "stink pot" sailors. (Just trying to be fair in this name calling game.)
Left my info with a few trusted dealers, so we will see what come around. If not, I hear that kyacking is becoming popular?

Amateur imbiber talking, there Chris.
You don't stir or even shake a martini. You just disturb the surface of the Gin or Vodka a touch. :artist:

Even a smaller boat is still really nice. It dont have to be a 100m long yacht. :) Although I wouldnt throw one away if I had one :D
