We've pretty well settled on a 39' Azimut.
For years we've been doing research, learning about boating in general, learning more about what we'd like and how to do stuff with the boat.
For months now, we've been trying to find a name. It doesn't sound complicated but can really be tougher than it seems. You need to find something that reflects you, that's creative, but not too weird that you feel silly every time you use it when calling into a marina or filling out government paperwork.
Our list of possible names is really long going from really boring to really funny or stuff you'd never see on a boat because it would scare the neighbours or little kids haha - I have no idea what I'm talking about anymore.
Anyways, the one we've pretty well "settled" on is: Never Settle.
It describes us. It describes our boat. It describes our life.
As Paris Hilton would say... Loves it.
Now all we need is to get the money to buy it...

I know you're thinking "how is that news?"
Well here's the deal. When I was a baby or a really young kid I don't know - apparently I had grapefruit and REALLY didn't like it. It made me sick. So ever since then, as well as with the fact that I don't really like the taste/smell, I never had grapefruit.
Now, thirty some years later, I had a piece of grapefruit. It looked really good. Since I have a cold, I can only taste about half so maybe that helped too. But it wasn't too bad. I'm not gonna eat like 3 at a time like someone who lives with me but I'm glad I tried some.
Oh, and speaking of trying things - I learned recently that the kind of sushi I like actually had raw fish in it. Who knew? Had a bunch of kinds the other night, raw fish and all. Is niiiiice!
