Thanks, yeah I live a life filled with classics it seems haha.

Everyone on board owns multiple Volvos :cool:

 

Very nice, even more beautiful than I imagined! I just took out our little 13' Mellonseed skiff with my oldest kid for the first time the other day. It was a blast. 

What are the details of your boat?

Yeah.  Ordered  a Touring 7 pass with rear captain and checked most of the boxes.  
 

can’t wait to get it.  My outback needs axles and some other stuff before giving to kids 

We were considering one of those before we went with the Atlas, but have heard that the ride in them is pretty terrible from a few different people.

Nice!  Those are cool boats, and built about 40 minutes from my house.

Ours is a Herreshoff Buzzards Bay 15.

Awesome. I used to frequent the Herreshoff Museum when I was in undergrad. Incredible place. You have good taste!

Thanks! 

They have a few 15s at the museum, below the model room.

Well this is what happens when the oldest comes home from her first semester away at university and finds her driving skills are rusty. Lowered sedan bumper fails to meet higher Nissan Rogue and that’s all she wrote on this poor car in what was a low speed impact. 
 

Now searching for another Volvo to replace it. Likely pick up another p80 sedan or wagon for the girls until used car prices come back to earth. DAC1915A-BDC1-4861-B0FD-C3F38C81E151.thumb.jpeg.b34aed95d6c944dc1a8190ce4c85e8ee.jpegA5FE8A8A-5B97-4FF2-ADE5-A8415A433EF1.thumb.jpeg.8a4e173422d3351cf8a68cd8c938b2c1.jpeg

Assuming no one was hurt; yes?

Don't let it die, it's an olive for crying out loud!  It actually doesn't look too bad..
