The Boat Search Is Winding Down...

We are honing in on our new boat.  We're not quite there yet, but it looks like we might be making an offer on something in the next few weeks.  And no, we're not going to tell you about it until it's all said and done.  Sorry for that, but we're going to play this hand close to our chest.  There might be one more trip in the near future, but either way - we're getting there.

Unfortunately, it doesn't end when and if we buy a new boat.  There is a lot to figure out once we open up this can of worms!  First, we must put our beloved Rasmus on the market (luckily, we've had a good amount of interest in her from a handful of our readers) and then we must get to work on some logistics.  Because the boat we might buy is here in the USA and our Rasmus is in Trinidad - we need to work out how to get the boats together so we can do the good ole' switcheroo of our belongings.  Right now, it looks like Scott might fly down to Trinidad with a delivery crew and sail Rasmus back to wherever it is we buy our new boat.  There are a couple reasons for this:  first, it allows us a couple of months to get our new boat up to speed (any boat we buy - no matter what - will require *some* customization and work) and second, it allows us to put Rasmus on the market here in the USA where we feel she will have a better chance of getting sold (she is the perfect Bahamas boat and ready to go!).  From there - we'll most likely deliver our new boat to the Caribbean to pick up where we left off!

There's a lot of work ahead of us - but we're excited as ever for it!!


Love,

Brittany, Scott & Isla

Good idea. I can only imagine the amount of "free advice" you receive. Plus, if I'm the seller, I would use your popularity to my advantage. The adventure sounds great and that is a nice photo of the family. Take care of each other!

We've never sold a boat, but watched close from the sidelines as my step dad sold his this year. At the same time, we were searching for a boat to buy (we took delivery in April), so we're new to all of this, and will follow this part of your adventure with some of our own sorting and deciding fresh in our minds. Lots of logistics, but very exciting too. Rooting for you from afar. :)
