Currently, Serenity is just a dream, but I’m working hard to make it real. I am a contractor is Afghanistan and have been over here for a little over a year. I’ve been saving most of the ill gotten booty from working in a war zone and have started looking for the boat. I got to come back to the states a couple weeks ago, and I’m pretty sure I have found the right boat for me. I’m 6’6″ tall, and have an strange desire to stand up inside my floating home, so I have a limited selection. I began the search looking into Morgan 461/462’s, Darfour 1200’s, and CSY 44’s .Luckily, a yacht broker that I really trust had a boat that I truly loved, so I just put an offer on a 1988 CSY 44 Walk-through in Annapolis. Luckily, I have a very savvy girlfriend and lots of sailing friends to do the heavy lifting on the hard parts of doing the surveys and sea trials. In the coming weeks, hopefully the dream will become more of a reality and waiting for me after my contract in the desert is over.
