Off to Chautauqua

We're on our way out the door, for a week at Chautauqua. Ah, bliss! We're taking Mom and Dad, for their 45th anniversary.

The week's other big development: I put in a lowball offer on this, and won! I had originally budgeted roughly $10k for a boat like this several years ago, and bought the Aztek because it's the cheapest thing I could find capable of hauling one, but diverted my J/24 fund into other projects when the Insolent 60 came along. I'm tentatively planning to drive to Annapolis on the weekend of the 13th to fetch her.
