Review of season 3 on our 270
Okay, season 3 is in the books and it was a mixed season on many fronts.....we still love our boat! We had many great days on Luvinlife, plenty of days with friends and family aboard! To level set, ours is a 2006 with the 5.7 Volvo GXI. We continue to make more and more great friends at out RI Marina and spend more time interacting, overnighting and visiting at the dock than I ever imagined. The convenience of shore power on hot days allows for AC and microwave and stove top cooking. To be sure, we did overnight in favorite coves as well, and visited a number of new places in RI bay waters. We had an expensive breakdown in August, had to get the starboard side head replaced which meant pulling the engine and losing 5 good weeks of the season. The good news is that the boat has been repaired and is running better than ever (fingers crossed it stays that way). I contemplated selling after the work was done but came to my senses. Never got to either Martha's Vineyard or Block Island (wasted the vacation week we were planning to go, but the boat was being repaired) but will do it next year! We had many great days and nights on the boat and miss it a lot already. May can't come fast enough for us to splash again! For the price, you can't beat the 270 for versatility, space, style and comfort. Big plans for adventures next summer!
