Welcome! Wait 'til you've had your 'stream for awhile and developed the 'addiction' to the forums...

Then, she'll know for sure that you've totally lost it. Ditto the pictures... break out the digital and post 'em! We love lookin'.

Ha - try having BOTH spouses be addicted. That's when it gets tough (one Excella, one 310 moho and now a 20' Argosy moho later...).

Welcome, and we're happy to have you! The turbo diesel is a desirable unit, congrats! I know you will enjoy it.

We have just finished a bunch of major work on our 310 to get it ready for our vacation a couple weeks ago (it did pretty well), and now it's all the smaller stuff and decorating. The outside will stay unstripped and unpolished for quite some time, I am afraid (all interior work will be done first with the exception of sealing outer seams).

Good luck with yours! Don't hesitate to ask any questions you may have!

Susan
