So are you buying the Caravel
from me, Andy, as a dealer? Why are you "sorry"?? Either that is just rhetorical sentiment or you want to help put one in for me for free?
It's ok though, not looking for an answer from you, as my question to you really is just rhetorical.
From our personal experiences the travelling went smooth, perhaps you're right, perhaps you are not. Maybe I will price out a replacement axle, if say I don't sleep well tonight with this in the back of my mind, and decided to take her to some place for an inspection, and found the replacement is in order. Then I'll price out the differences and keep that number instead. Or even fix up the broken copper pipe that I feel terrible about.
We have had her for a while. She's just getting further pushed back each year with kids' getting more involved with stuff. Sooner or later she'll find a new family to be with, and we'll be happy for that day.
Any more response, Andy, PM is ok. Or email me if you are interested. And thanks anyway for the expertise.
