No, it’s not a crossword puzzle position…. It’s our mooring spot at the Marina di Loano, Italy!

Last week, the thought suddenly hit us that we might need to book a mooring for our future boat. The sailing season starts and we don’t know how busy the marina will be in a few weeks.

What, if we buy DORAH and there is no more mooring available? We can’t possibly park her in our garden, can we?

So Patrik wrote to Elisa, at the Marina di Loano and asked about it. And indeed, there were only three places left on the sea side (our preferred side). Two weeks ago were still five available….

She answered by return and sent him a map of the marina with the three spots red marked – we even could choose, which one we favour!

Of course it was a big benefit that we visited the marina recently and knew how everything looks like. Means, we didn’t have to discuss for too long and picked M13!

Next, we had to do a down payment of 10% of an annual rent, which was roughly EUR 850.- . The contract for a year starts on 01st June 2018 – that’s about the time we plan to sail DORAH from Mallorca to Loano….Cool, so that’s settled!

And, yes, yes, we are still negotiating the price with Michael. The boat show in Palma di Mallorca is over and he has more time now. Hopefully, next week the deal will be wrapped up!
