I especially want to thank Bill and Judy for helping Lori and I become Amel owners. We were well on our way to buying an Amel when much to our surprise and delight we learned of the opportunity to buy sv BeBe.
Lori and I first came across Bill and Judy's blog several years ago when we started getting serious about our exit strategy from the full time workforce and family raising. Bill and I had a great conversation about the boats shortly after that and then about a year ago I joined the Amel owners group to begin to get a better knowledge of the boats and the community that owns and cares for them. And we also spent a very educational day with Joel Potter this spring (whom we had also met 20 years ago when we made a first attempt at cutting the lines). All that came quickly to a head when we heard that Bill and Judy were thinking about swallowing the anchor.
We had four intense days aboard BeBe in Trinidad where we agreed on the purchase and we are looking forward to two weeks of on-boarding with Bill and Judy when we close on the boat in January down in the USVI. We will then be looking forward to meeting more of you as we are out and about and will begin to interact more through this forum as we undoubtedly run into questions.
Best Regards Dan & Lori Carlson
