Somehow, during the course of this spring, while I was developing the outline for Into the Devil’s Throat as well as working on getting an audiobook in the works for Out of Hell’s Kitchen, my wife Amy and I ended up purchasing a boat. And not just any boat – but the boat we’ve been in love with ever since the first of her kind rolled out of the yard in 2005 (no small thanks to Peter, our boat broker from DiMillo’s Yacht Sales in Portland, Maine). Her name, naturally enough, is Sequel, a 2006 Sabre 38 Hardtop Express. She’s currently in Jupiter, Florida and Amy and I will be flying to Florida in less than a week to begin a 1,400 mile voyage to bring Sequel home.
During the trip I hope to share our experiences on this blog – so that even though I may not be working on my sequel, I’ll be working on the Sequel none the less.
Next up, in ICW 2 – The Boat, I’ll talk about, well, the boat!
Good Luck on the Voyage. That was me you almost ran over going past me with the headphones on in the North End on Commercial street 2 weeks ago. I was dropping off my paperwork for my 50 ton Masters license at the Coast Guard.
Jim – sorry my man! When you called me out of my stupor, I recognized you but too late. 50 ton masters! Very cool. Sounds like I know who to call if I get in trouble in the ditch…!
