then a yacht.
It's a symbol to some
that you've made it big,
or are trying to.
Many examples clog the bays of Southern California.
This was one that bucked that stereotype.
Recently built on the East Coast,
the owner actually motor-sailed it down to panama,
and up to the states.
as most times a crew will deliver boats like these,
and the owner just flies in to port.
this would be a reason.
These two pieces of metal
are supposed to be in-line.
new holes had to be made.
Seemed strange for a new boat
that just cruised thousands of miles.
This model is good for about 12 heavy duty holes,
but the better version wouldn't have fit.
Cabin space above is more important!
Yes it's cramped,
but I'd rather be in here for a couple days...
I've had to do this plenty of times,
even out in the middle of the ocean,
in a squall,
in the dark.
Not much for heights unless I have too.
These riggers were trying to find every excuse
to go back up!
after a repair.
No ball peen hammers,
unless your stuck in Costa Rica,
or some other paradise with limited tools.
a couple fun projects were added.
an electrician laid on these for a couple hours,
making them well worth it.
The owner new his stuff,
and the crew guy was a huge help.
He had a Cinderella story worthy of telling.
Justin went from being a road worker,
shoveling asphalt in the rain and heat,
with a wrongful paternity suit hanging over his head,
to a true water nomad chasing the summer.
His stay in San Diego was a fable,
reeling in girls like he'd been on a boat for months.
Cool to hear a good karma story.
but great to help them on their way north.
What a relief to see they didn't get stuck.
