What is the magic of a sailing ship?
The Sailing Vessel Shibumi
CSY, during that era was primarily a yacht chartering firm. They decided to built their own ships when they could not get the quality they were looking for from other boat builders.
The CSY 44 is one of several models built by the company. Jill and I like the CSY 44 because Shibumi is a center cockpit model that has a foward area with a main salon (living room), a forward vee-berth (guest bedroom), a head (toilet), and separate shower. Behind the cockpit is the aft-cabin (master bedroom) with its own head and shower. Also in the aft-cabin is the navigation table, very convienent to the cockpit helm.
Shibumi? What is Shibumi?
Our Retirement Plans Got a Boost
Things happened faster than we had planned. We have a house in Palm Coast, Florida that we planned to retire to, someday. Well, that someday was, all of a sudden, now; but the house was leased-out to a fellow from Pennsylvania for another six months.
Our home in Atlanta sold quickly and we had to get out.
Our only option was to put our things in storage and seek the 'eloquent silence' of Shibumi.
