I am buying Bob Bellingham’s Shasta and all his gear for $1800.
“Thank you, Bob, if you ever read this, as I am grateful that you accepted (not without a fair amount of ribbing) my much-reduced-offer from your original request. I will conduct a proper ceremony for the rechristening and name change of the Barbara May, per our discussion at Cooper’s. And, you can count on me drinking a beer in your honor regularly along the way. Although, probably not as frequently as you were given the opportunity to knock one back on your journey.” 😉 Cheers!
I have posted my 1982 diesel VW Camper Van on eBay to, hopefully, get enough money to pay for the boat and gear. And, I posted my Prijon Seayak ($1500 (obo)) on CraigsList and eBay with the hope I can get Rio Oso’s ACL surgery scheduled.
