As we have reported to you before, our dream boat is the Marlow Explorer. We seriously considered buying one for this trip but ultimately, we concluded that we were not going to be able to make that happen before we leave. Since making that decision, we have been focused on making sure the Pilot’s Discretion is going to be ready to embark on our trip. Our friend and boat broker Eric Gervais refuses to read the memo that says we have made our decision. Eric called last week to ask us if we wanted to join him to run a brand new 58 Marlow from Sarasota to Snead Island Florida where Marlow has its completion center. He only had to ask once. Yesterday, Theresa, Eric and I celebrated Eric’s birthday while aboard the Marlow enroute to Snead Island. We did not buy it but I can tell you for sure that we had a lot of fun aboard David Marlow’s latest creation.
