Downsizing Boat Style

You've heard about our Hewescraft purchase, but what about our other boats. Things were getting a bit crowded around the cabin, so we decided to downsize.  Our Campion bowrider was our main means of lake transportation and she served us well for eleven years. On our trip north towing our new boat, we met Dale at the Horseshoe Bay ferry terminal. He was in the market for a boat, and it turned out our Campion met his needs. It feels good knowing she is going to a great new home.

Our other boat was a Bayliner 2350. She used to be our ocean boat, but moved up the lake for winter use. Our good friend John helped us sell that one too.

The new Hewescraft is replacing two former boats. That opens up a lot of dock space, and reduces our upkeep tremendously. Downsizing in life is always a good thing. -- Margy


  1. It's called decluttering!

  2. Jennifer -- Either way it's a good thing. Maintaining two boats with two engines and higher gas mileage was more costly for sure. - Margy

  3. It looks just fantastic for two, right? Downsizing is a perfect solution then :-)

  4. Sounds like you had great fun! I went on a canal holiday when I was 22yrs old & it was the best holiday even better than the girly clubbing holidays I been on in the past. However I nearly tipped the boat when going through a lock but that added to the exicitment lol! HalcyonSailing.Com
