    Hello David.
    Wanted to let you know that I sold my boat. It was purchased by two Canadian guys who live in Panama. They only offered about two thirds of what I wanted, but that is the going rate now I guess.
    Thank you for listing her on your website. Good luck in the future.
    Colon, Panama
