It had been too long. He was ready to get out in the boat, and he had his brand new Raymarine equipment that he wanted to test out too.
He couldn't believe that he'd finally gotten it all. Depth finders, chart plotters, compasses... the works! He'd even gotten a fancy new gps system. She'd have never let him do it, he knew. But, well, she wasn't here anymore. Who'd asked her to go and run off with that fellow anyway?
Now, at last, he was his own man. He had the boat of his dreams, all decked out with the latest toys. And he was going to enjoy himself, whatever she might think of it.
