Wow, You have done a fabulous job, believe me I understand how many hours you have spent on her refit. I am currently re-fitting out my CSY37 "Someday" here in the UK.

Hi, my name is Jim. Cheri (my wife) and I owned JAZZ for about 4 years. Before we owned her she was owned by a young couple we met in the Bahmas (Brad and Rebecca). We fell in love with JAZZ and bought her from Brad and Rebecca in 1999. We took her to the Bahamas, the Keys and then to Lake Erie where we sold her in 2002. I have owned many boats, but none compared to JAZZ. I hope my rewiring job has held up.
