Have you considered simply starting with a nicer bus? I don't know what your skills are, but the race is easier if you can see the finish line. If you are not a runner, don't start off doing a marathon.

That's what I was hoping/thinking. The responsible thing to do of course is to save the bus and the boat- they're a set now that should not be separated.

Today was a good day. Finally brought this one home. The previous owner is a great guy and I am so thankful to own it. It has some neat history which I will share when I have more time.

You're welcome, Adam. Free'd up some space in my garage and glad that stuff is going to another bus. I'd been storing it for many years. Nice not to have to ship, and do an in person deal too. I guess you figured out where all the pieces go.
