I had many expectations but what I got was a complete surprise! I thought “on the scene ready to go” Patrick was going to get back to us with a price to work off, what I got was the owner no longer wants to sell he loves his boat too much and what he thought he wanted (a new catana) he doesn’t want anymore.

“Crickey we the ready to buy buyers didn’t see that coming”

We do need to have a conversation with Patrick rather than an early morning text but this was left field for us.  We have gone from nearly having the ideal boat to back on the land looking wistfully out to sea.

My father as always was very philosophical about the proceedings and reminded me as one door closes another will reopen.  Who am I to argue with a man who is celebrating 80 years this very day? Happy Birthday Dad!

Possible Options to consider

1. Deposit stays, perhaps organise boat review and pre plan to buy boat in 18 months maybe seller ready to go then

2.We can renegotiate terms and timing to suit all and continue plan until this morning with different dateline

3.We all walk away and continue the search for Miss Catana

4.We keep in touch and see how we go in the future with this seller

    Hello this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if
    blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I
    wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the
    book in it or something. I think that you could do
    with some pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is fantastic blog.
    A fantastic read. I will certainly be back.

  26. Teena

    I think that everything wrote made a ton of sense. However, consider this, what if you were
    to write a killer headline? I ain’t suggesting your information is not solid,
    however suppose you added a post title that makes people desire more?
    I mean “Sorry What Did You Say…” |
    Miss Catana is a little boring. You could
    glance at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create post headlines to get viewers to open the links.
    You might try adding a video or a pic or two to get
    readers excited about what you’ve got to say. Just my opinion, it
    would bring your blog a little livelier.
