  1. You did it! Glad to see that the listing is complete and advertised, and hopefully, the blog boosts the news a bit. Cambria is such a sound and well-maintained boat. I hope she finds a good owner soon, one that cares as much about her as you two!

    1. Thanks, Liesbet. It's been a frustrating process, but we're making some progress and have the boat advertised in sailing magazines and online. Fingers crossed for a quick sale!

    2. Unfortunately, we know all about that frustration... Good luck!!
