    Well, she(39)s ours! 1998 Avanti 3685 (34)Dad(39)s Dream(34) is in the fleet . . .-gctid811000

    Yep, she's the newest resident in the Stradling fleet of vessels . . . seem to get longer and wider with each one. Signed the papers today and we're on her this weekend. Pups are somewhat happy about it all but don't understand the green mat on the swim step yet. Twin 454's (380 HP each) but really old electronics . . new ones will be ordered soon (once I figure out which ones I want) . . . . so much for the savings . . . . inch:

                      Yeah, that has already been underway this weekend . . . full F-150 pickup truck load (bed and back seats [crew cab]) went into the boat, threw away probably 400 lb of stuff and bought home every tub that was emptied into the boat - only they were full when I got them home (of someone else's stuff - need some bedding?)

                      Now to get the electronics done . . . a lot more $$$$ . . . thanks canoel!

                            Yes, it did, Joon. My apologies for not getting back sooner. We sampled after the sea trial and almost every item was down below the "alarm" level . . . we're thinking that the two items that weren't low enough were because of residual contamination. . . . definitely much better.
