Boat search: Ended! Grace is ours.

It is official we are the proud owners of Grace, the 40' Mariner. We saw a lot of great boats during our search, (Sea Voyager, Scarab) and several that were less than shipshape, but Grace is far and away our favorite.
For the past week we have been going crazy getting all the loose ends made fast and making arrangements for getting an engine, haul-out, paint, stove, etc. Lord willing we will have everything under control by the time we fly out for a friends wedding in Indiana the beginning of next month, so we can enjoy our time there and come back and start in on the restoration work.


  1. Congratulations, Ben & Corrie! Grace looks like an amazing boat, and I hope you enjoy many happy years aboard her.

    My wife and I lived aboard for a number of years, while raising two children. It was a wonderful time in our lives.

    I'd love to get in touch with Ken regarding Scarab (Indigo Blue). If you still have his contact info, please drop me a note ( His CraigsList posting has either expired or been removed.

    Happy sails!
