Hey Butch and Pat.  Do you have any idea when your boat will be coming through Wittenberg or Cape?  We might go watch it go by.  Or maybe she's already past.

Dear Friends - As some of you know, Pat and I sold our SeaRay, N2Deep at the end of July.  Thank you Vebbie and GTB Yacht Sales for that accomplishment.  Since then, we have been searching for another boat to fill our slip on Pier 11.  (It turns out, P11-S12 does not have much to offer without a boat in it!)

Captain Bill Berlin is en route as I write this with our recent purchase and we are excited to invite anyone who cares to attend to our official "Boat Denaming Ceremony" at 6:00pm sharp on Saturday, September 24th to our slip on Pier 11.  We will decorously ask Neptune and Aeolus to strike the old name from their records in preparation for a Christening ceremony to be conducted at a later date.   Of course we will offer the proper libations to the Gods of the Sea and all those who attend.  

Please RSVP, if you can, to my account here on the web site to ensure the quantity of libation purchased and offered is adequate.

Looking forward to seeing your new boat.  Great to have you, Pat and Tipsy back @ the Pier.

Anxious for a tour of the new boat!  Kate and Paul

Bill Berlin just sent me a text.  He has stopped just north of Peoria, IL and reports "all is good".

The boat is on the way.  Bill Berlin left Michigan City at first light on Saturday.  He made it as far as Harborside Marina, just south of Joliet.  Sunday saw delays at the locks and I did not get his final destination today.  Anyway, Pat and I hope to have a place to "hang out" on Pier 11 this week.

Andrew and Sallyann-Survey is Tuesday. We are here now and will be present with the current owner as the surveyors and marina dudes do their thing. Let the fun begin.

Butch how did the survey go? Happy Labor day Pier 11. The Foley, AL area got alot of rain from TS Lee. Only rained a little bit here in Columbus, MS.

Sorry, no we do not. I do think we saw it along our travels though. I looked at the listing on Yachtworld, looks nice.

@Andrew and Sallyann Newton.  Yes, the name of the boat now is Happy Ours.  Do you know the vessel or owner?
