Once Sam got obsessed about doing America’s Great Loop, he spent almost every spare moment online searching for a boat.

The plan was to do the Great Loop after Sam had retired from American Airlines.

We had a talked about what we would like in a floating home and Sam was devoted to finding it.

The search lasted about a year.

On one of Sam’s trips to the east coast, he met a broker named Trey Schaefer. Trey showed Sam a few boats until they found, THE ONE.

The One happened to be a 504 Carver Motor Yacht. It is named Here’s To Us!!

Turning This Boat Into a Home

We love the layout of the Here’s To Us!! but there were a few changes we wanted to make before starting the Great Loop.

The salon (living room) had a table and chairs so we are putting in a restaurant style booth with extra storage under the seats.

The aft bridge had a patio set with a love seat, two chairs and a coffee table that looks like it should be in your back yard not on a boat.

What Do You Think?

Do you think we made the right decision? Should we have just forgotten about the remodeling projects and started the Great Loop already?

What would you have done?
