Hello Chuck and all,
Yes, Cigano is gone, a bittersweet moment, but one just knows when it’s time to cut the line and let go, aging knees and all. It was clearly time to downsize.
We had a hell of a run with her, and we would absolutely, and confidently chose that boat again in a heartbeat, above all others.
I will certainly lurk about here on the forum as long as my eyes and key-tapping fingers keep working — once a Cabo Rico fanatic, always a Cabo Rico fanatic.
I’ve been a bit absent recently, being absorbed by the rather consuming sale-related efforts.
We have reciprocally benefitted from the knowledge of so many others here as well — many thanks to all of you. This is truly a great, supportive group.
There will always be a sailboat in our life, but we know nothing will stack up to Cigano.
I hesitate to admit to the project-boat we just adopted — a Southcoast 22 — but it just sort of landed in our lap, as they say.
Our very best wishes to all here in the forum, and may the fairest of winds be at your sterns.
