    Well, I’m glad I didn’t go to the auction. That price is out of my league, and It would have been embarassing to have been standing there crying. God I love that boat!

      All many of us can do is wipe out tears and give the buyer a congratulatory pat on the back and hope to bum a ride in the future.

    So, off topic – but for all the varnished hulls I’ve lusted after and some I’ve owned – why do I find myself drooling over that Higgins in the header photo the last 2 days?
