From “We’re sailing again” to “We now have no boat”, that is quite a jump.
The short of it is, we’re moving back to Atlanta area in mid-June and we practically would not use the boat. After a lot of deliberation, we decided it was time to let her go, but it had to be done quickly. As of yesterday, Heike has been passed off to her new owner.
It’s a little bittersweet. On one hand, selling the boat was a relief given our circumstances, but we really hate that we weren’t able to do some cruising. The unfortunate reality is that owning a small business like ours and taking days at a time off just to arrive at your destination isn’t feasible. It makes me sad to think that we weren’t able to make the trips that we wanted, especially after all the work we did, but this just isn’t the right time of life for us right now.
There will be a time, later down the line, but we need to focus on making that time happen for right now.
