Last Days on Mystic

This is our last time slot on Mystic in 2017. Mystic is a 42' Jeanneau DS 2007. She is a fractional lease through Pinnacle Yachts. It's a bit breezy tonight so we thought, better to stay in and grab some dinner out.

Let me explain....the Boss and I have had this fantasy about sailing around the Caribbean after we retire. A great idea but, we didn't know how to sail. Hence the lease on Mystic. She did her job. We are 100% committed to this lifestyle and we've decided to buy our own boat. We figured we'd have this lady for 5 to 6 years and then sell her. The recent hurricanes in the Caribbean have changed out thinking. Mystic has shown us how to sail and, more importantly, what we don't like in a sail boat.

We are currently looking at Catalinas as we really like the way they sail.

This blog will be dedicated to our purchacing process and, eventually, taking her to the Caribbean.

Stick around for updates!
