Double Wide has been SOLD!

Well, they say that the best 2 days in a boat owner’s life are when he buys his boat and when he sells it. Michelle and I are feeling a both sad and happy about letting you all know that we have sold Double Wide (that’s the sad part) and the happy part is that we’ve purchased a new boat. Our new boat is a 47 foot Nordhavn trawlers. Some of our sailing friends may think less of us for leaving sailing and going to a power boat and leaving sailing behind, but we’re excited about the cruising opportunities that our new boat opens up to us. The new boat, which we’ll take possession of in a couple of weeks will be called ROAM. I’ve already started working on a new website, so feel free to check her out:

We look forward to seeing our cruising friends out there in the coming months and years and we hope our non-boating friends will come and join us from time to time on our future adventures.

    Well Clark & Michelle what an exciting time ! Getting to know ‘ROAM’ l & having all the fond memory’s & experiences aboard DW. I ALL, preparing you both for new adventures as trawlers (crawlers). And, saving grace for the ‘sailing’ fix is you can always fit a ‘steady sail’ for the trawler mast rig & appease/ keep the sailing community friendly.
    Trawlers w/ steady sail is kinda like debunking the proveb “Having the Cake & eating it too” , you CAN have the trawler (powerboat) & set the steady sail (sailboat). hahaha

    Fair skies & flowing seas… All the best to you both.
    Love, Florida Haleys

    Congratulations on the transition. Sailors are really power boaters waiting for the wind to blow. Who will be the administrator of your old Manta organization site? Any contact information would be appreciated. Lee Wittle, Saltrun
