I’m thinking we should start our own business: S&S: Boat Deliverers, Extraordinaire. Because for the second time in four months, we’re delivering a boat. Okay, so business isn’t exactly booming – maybe we’ll keep our day jobs (once we get them) – but it’s definitely a fun little side gig.
This delivery’s a little different from sailing Free Range to Antigua: no grumpy customs agents; no bribes, docking, or anchoring required; minimal logistics (Siri, directions to Lake Namaciento, CA), and, ironically, not a drop of water involved.
In three days we drive 36 hours, take in one Vegas show, sample wine from two Californian wineries, and manage to evade police in five states (cracked windshield on the borrowed truck and expired registration on the boat’s trailer).
