Hey guys: I have sailed on a Westsail like yours and they are a really solid blue water boat! Congrats on your detailed plan. Nothing in life happens without one! I admire your discipline with documenting your budget. Although I haven’t had much “dingy” experience, most of the blog writers I follow seem to agree that a hp outboard is required to get most dingy’s up on plane. If you can’t do so, the ride ashore can be long and wet! Just a thought as I see you are looking at a much smaller o/b.
I look forward living vicariously through blogs such as yours while I wait for my time in the sun!!
Regards, Mike in Toronto
I’m a big advocate of Adwords myself. But I do think many business owners make the mistake of looking at AdWords from a cost-accounting perspective – I’ll admit I once did. An interesting read I picked up this week that explains that a bit more. It looks like I can't post links here but it's called "Your ROI from AdWords is Higher Than You Think" and it's written by David Deppner if you want to look it up. It doesn’t go into the nitty gritty of how much AdWords costs or how much you should spend, specifically, but it does a great job of explaining how to realize and calculate your actual ROI from a business perspective.
