As a kid growing up, I’ve had to flush my sick goldfish down the hole, bury several beloved pet dogs for various reasons, attend many of my own kids’ pet funerals, like the hamster, frog, etc., but today was just as hard as having to bury one of my trusted hunting dogs. I sold my boat, the “ISO KALA”. ISO KALA means “Big Fish” in Finnish and my grandma would say, as I left to go fishing with my grandpa, catch lots of “Iso Kalas”.
She was an incredible sea boat for the last seven years. I have enjoyed the bejesus out of her and already miss her, even though she’s only been gone a few hours. I was seriously lucky finding the buyer, who will be a perfect fit for her and take excellent care of her in the future.
I sold her, as there will be very little time for me to use her over the next couple of years. There will be a post about this sometime next week.
Another boat will be in my future. It may take two or three years before I’m ready to jump back in, but I really like the names Duffy, Wesmac, Calvin Beal, Northern Bay, Flowers and Lowell Brothers to name a few.
