Selling our beloved Trojan F32 with twin Cummins 6BTAs

Post by rossjo »

I just paid Don to post on the Boats for Sale area, but wanted to get the word out before the weekend is over.

We are forced to sell our beloved Trojan F32 because my wife has battled cancer for 7.5 years and has now lost the use of her left arm. We are downsizing to an older Montauk 17 that I am restoring.

We have owned Viva Mahia (slang for "Celebrate the Mahi") since 2005, and keep her here at our dock, where we have done a lot of upgrades over the years. We will miss her...

You have been a part of the "OLD GUARD" here for a long time.

So sorry to hear of your situation

My wife is also battling cancer with Multiple Myleoma since 2010

Changed our intended boat use as well - we never did those long, extended trips we had planned

Best of luck to you both.

RWS,

Thank you, and I understand completely.

We have done a few 3-4 day trips, but never a week or two as we had hoped.

Its all good. We have found other things to do, and stay positive!

We would like our "baby" to find a good home with a Trojan person.

Best of luck to you as well. Our thoughts and prayers are with you...

Thank you Jamie!

She is tough. Motivated to get her arm working again so she can play golf! :D
