We've spent the week dancing between the boat broker, the insurance company, the State of Maryland, the Coast Guard and the bank, a very full dance card, in duplicate and notarized. And then they all had to talk to each other -- and the sellers.

A smarter person would have read all those papers they signed. I'm not that smart. The only one I read word for word was the power of attorney form. Don't worry, it only offered limited signature rights for the boat transaction in case we missed one of the 843 places we were supposed to sign.

As the clock on our loan approval ticks down, expiring on January 31, it appears that we're almost done. In our perpetually almost life, we almost have a boat.
