With Rover hauled out at Jabins for some projects and a new coat of bottom paint, Lisa and I are surfing YachtWorld and giving a little thought to what our next boat might be.

After a fairly long and storied search for just the right boat, we’re over the moon to have found and closed a deal on our new baby. She will be re christened Le Saberage (Google it for the meaning!) and we’ll call her “Seb” for short.

In the days that follow there will be a lot more posts as we take delivery of her (tomorrow) and begin a series of shakedown cruises here on the upper Chesapeake Bay as preparation for our first full season with her next summer in Newport.


Stay tuned – lots more to come!

Lisa and I have been busy on our hunt for the perfect two-couple cruising boat, and have seen six boats. We really liked one we saw in Connecticut, but found ourselves disappointed when it didn’t work out. In the end it may work out for the best, however, since we’ve got our eye on another boat closer to home. Our fingers are crossed that this one finds a new home with us!
