Today we headed to Whidbey Island for a farewell for one of my co-workers. It was a nice drive over Deception Pass, but nonetheless my mind was on the boat and our pending offer. Just as we arrived at the party, Frank’s phone rang. They had countered again asking for $1000 more. $1000 more? Just a stinking $1000 more? Seriously? I was a little turned off by this game the seller was playing but looked at Frank and said, “Whatever. Get the boat.” We accepted the counter offer. Rick met up with us tonight to sign all the paperwork. I was relieved. I mean, we still have the survey, sea trial, closing, and transfer to the US to contend with, but I feel like we are well on our way with a fantastic boat.
