Welcome Chesapeaker!

What a beautiful Sisu, looks like she was just launched! Must be a great boat to cruise the Bay in.

Thank you Hooper. And yes, she's a great Bay boat, and always gets compliments, even once from a commercial waterman! Most of our time aboard has been in good conditions, but the few times its turned really nasty, she has taken very good care of us. We are reluctant to sell, but looking to downsize. I've seen a Webbers Cove 22 w/outboard and trailer that might fit the need. One at a time though.

In February 2008, I bought a 28 Seaworthy from a great guy in Virginia Beach at Rudee Inlet. Two weeks later I flew down and ran her up the Bay to Gateway Marina in Trappe to be hauled and shipped to Cape Cod. Icy cold rough ride, about 110 miles toal if I recall correctly, but I enjoyed seeing the Bay for the first time. Thought I recognized that wake, lol! Good luck with the sale, she's a real beauty.

I know this boat.I've spoken to her owner several times.Seeing a well kept and well appointed yacht such as this one (Magnolia),gives meaning to the phrase "ship shape and Bristol fashion".I keep my boat(Dyer 29) at the same yard in Denton (Mathews).The attention to detail at this place is something we can all learn from. Sorry she's for sale,but somebody is going to get real lucky,and real happy when they buy her.Good Luck.
I'll see you in the spring.

Thanks for the endorsement Bill. So far, through Mathews, we have had some interest from folks in Florida, New York and Maine.

I'm sure we'll cross paths in the Spring. See you then.
