Captain Tom Honig, licensed by the United States Coast Guard, has enjoyed his passion
for sailing for over 40 years. The last two years of his life have been consumed by a project that was not planned, but seemed
the right thing to do at the time. 5000 man hours later, you have to wonder, what was he thinking?
Hi, I'm Tom, I write all the stuff on the web site, and I will explain, in the first person,
instead of writing about myself as if I was not here, why I bought Hull #43, why I am selling it, why I do not want
to sell it (obvious, it is a great boat), why the ROI, return on investment, is in the minus column, The materials alone
this Cal 40 sucked up in the last two years, stored in ziplock bags of receipts, marked by the month, waiting to be totaled,
yuck , will negate the $40,000 gross return on this boat I bought for $19,000 in Annapolis, and I am selling for $59,000
in Wilmington NC.
