Yachting around

I spent the morning yachting around on a 7.2 million dollar vessel. Yea, I know ... that's how I roll :-)

We kicked off the Seattle Boat Show this morning aboard "SeaVenture" - a local yacht that is over 100 feet long with 3000 sq ft of living space. It was spectacular! 

Here are the specs:

- 9 bathrooms
- 5 showers
- 5 staterooms + 2 for crew
- granite counter tops
- spiral staircase (I mean, no boat should be without that :-)
- it can go for 1000 miles without re-fueling. That's from Seattle to LA!!

We were hanging with the folks from Hargrave Custom Yachts. These are people that you want to know.  They custom build yachts ... wow! They hold the key to my dream...l0l. My new goal ... get a yacht.

I was on this incredible boat all thanks to the Seattle Boat Show. For the past 64 years they've been wowing people here in Seattle with thousands of styles of boats, seminars on everything to do with boating, and lots of fun DIY projects to do at home with the fam (how would you like to build a cardboard boat or assemble a kit plane?). Much more about the Seattle Boat Show below, but first, let's check out that yacht!

You really should hit up the boat show. It's on for the next 10 days and will be tons of fun - I promise!
