Over the past couple of years I have found myself sailing less as my limited leisure time has been taken up by other interests. The result of this is that Bluster languished under her tarp, unused and unappreciated.
Last fall I made the tough decision to sell Bluster. In March I posted her on the classified ads of the Small Craft Adviser magazine and the Port Townsend Pocket Yachter web site. I had numerous inquiries.
Todd from Portland was particularly interested and after some email information exchanges we agreed on a price and pick up date. Todd has an interest in small wooden boats and was quite familiar with the Chebacco. He sounded like a handy guy and keen on the maintenance and modifications that goes with this sort of project boat. He has a young family and he envisions fun times on the water with them. Todd reminded me a little of the younger me. He picked her up on April 15th.
I am thrilled to think that Bluster is off to a new second life with Todd and his family!
