Boat we are buying - we think!

I thought I'd post some photos of the boat that we are buying....and I say "we think" because the deal is not finished yet.  Due to some scheduling delays on some repairs, we won't be getting the boat until October when we return from our Australia trip.

The boat is near Houston, will be quite an adventure getting it home to NC!!  I calculated that it's well over 2500 miles.

This is the boat - a Manta 40 catamaran.  These photos are not mine - they are the previous owner's.  We have not seen the boat yet, but have a deposit on it pending our inspection.  If it's as advertised, it's very well equipped and a good solid boat.

The name will NOT remain "Double Wide"....we'll have to have a re-naming ceremony to appease the "sea gods"! definitely NOT included, of course!
