By the time you read this, we will be underway — moving our Pearson 303 down to Deltaville, Virginia. After six wonderful years with Shearwater, it’s time for someone else to enjoy her; so once we get her moved, she’s going on the market.
I don’t have all the photos ready yet (I was hoping to share them in this post, but I simply ran out of time); however, I have a teaser to share — as well as some older images.
Owning a boat is an emotional experience; we’ve struggled with the decision to sell Shearwater for at least three years now.
So why don’t we just keep her? Our window to enjoy her has closed… we no longer have the time necessary to visit and care for her — increasing workload at our jobs, more obligations at home now, etc. Plus, we live far away from the marina and the commute time is roughly three hours, if the traffic is good — so even a very brief visit is an all day affair.
We finally came to a decision and it’s time. Long time readers will know how much we have enjoyed her and what a great boat she has been for us.
