    Hi, David.
    The boat has just sold to a happy couple from Canada.
    They found her on your website and drove 1300 miles to buy it.
    So, I will be boatless, hopefully, not for long. I thank You for your great services!
    Please provide an address where to mail in a donation for your site.
    Sincerely, Alex
    Bolingbrook, Illinois
