Bill and Judy,
Thank you for all that you do for us Amel owners. Being one of the newest members of the Amel family, our decision to buy our 1993 SM this past August, was in large part to your story and adventures, and to the family we observed on this forum prior even to joining. Being fellow Texans there was something about the two of you and BeBe, and to be honest learning of you selling her was a day of mixed emotions. The brighter side of that event was that my wife and I decided to stop simply admiring Amel's from a distance and window shopping to making a visit to It's Good in Virginia and making an offer on Memorial Day of this year.
Since our closing at the end of August we have spent time making the boat ours, fixing minor things, labeling things and getting to know the boat. That said, every time we have made it up to visit there was a tropical storm looming near by, pushing high winds and sea toward where we were tied up at the Marina. That was also a blessing in disguise, because it made my wife feel very comfortable and safe.
Soon we will be bringing the boat down to Charleston, SC for the winter, and we will be reaching out to you hoping to get on your calendar and becoming graduates of the Amel School!
Thank you so much, maybe we can drive down to Galveston for lunch with the two of you, we are up in the Lake Conroe area, so not too far at all.
Godspeed to you both!
Mark and Jennifer Garver
1993 SM #105
