Selling and Sailing- General Update
Watch episode 82 here!
We spent January and February emptying out the storage building and making sure the house was in tip top shape to get it ready to sell.
Things aren’t going as easily as we had hoped concerning the sale of our house. It’s not really that big of a deal, aside from the fact that it’s causing us to miss out on valuable cruising time.
This post shares our current day-to-day living as well as sharing our future plans for sailing and cruising.
Rest assured that we are anxious as HECK to get back out there.
It’s going to happen, and when it does, we’ll be that much more free to roam as a result of the preparations we’re making during our down time.
Our house is officially SOLD as of the end of April.
Its an incredible relief to have that off our plate. Now, we can concentrate more on boat stuff instead of house stuff.
The feeling can only be described as “bitter sweet”. It’s the first house that Tambi and I bought together. It’s the house Molly was BORN in – heck, it may even be where she was conceived… bowchickawowow.
Suffice it to say that an abundance of wonderful memories are tied to that house and thats what makes it tough to see it go. Ultimately though, we’re all happy and excited for the additional freedom that we can enjoy without the added responsibility and stress of managing a piece of Real Estate from afar.
From here, the plan is to stay land-based through hurricane season. We’re still making trips to the boat to work on it every few weeks. I hope to have the boat out of the water within the next month so that the mast can be unstepped in order to complete the standing rigging replacement. After that, she’ll stay on the hard for the next few months with the goal to have her ready to splash just as soon as the hurricane season fizzles out.
The big-picture plan is slowly coming together, and the sale of our house is a HUGE accomplishment that we can officially check off the list.
