Congratulations on the new job Mike! Hoping it works out well for you.
Sounds like you must have negotiated well! I think, on behalf of the entire club, you should be highly encouraged to act on your "new boat" idea. My suggestion for you is a HPX-T. Let us know when it is ready, but please try to arrange in time for the next saltwater outing.
Very cool - glad this has worked out for you.
