You may remember Jon ("Telltales," March 2009) as the fellow who was searching for a Bertram 37 similar to Anhinga. Jon had been threatening to unbolt his swollen wallet for more than a year, but he is a certified tightwad, or-as he prefers-"a value-conscious shopper". Jon convinced me the time had come to spend and I abandoned Thanksgiving leftovers to join him on his quest to "steal" a 37. The effort came to nothing since the boat had already been "stolen" by another bottom dragger. Jon, however, is a bloodhound and, focused on the opportunity at hand, he soon found another 37 in distress.
