Well I have started with the retirement plan. I retire in less than 3 years. The Admiral and I bought a dock on the lower Columbia River. This insignificant for a few reasons. One there are no new docks being approved by Washington State DNR for the lower Columbia River, which means you have to buy one that is already built. Rarely if ever does this occur. We happen to be in the right place at the right time and got really really lucky. There are at least 3 other folks I know that tried to undercut me and offer the owners more (much more) than what I was buying the dock for. Second this dock will be used as a "winter base" as we plan to get a bigger boat and cruise the inside passage and PWS during the summer months.
Lots of work to do and some relaxing too. This past weekend the Admiral caught the first fish off of the dock, a nice steelie.
