|Mr. Moffatt chose this 2016 Nissan Pathfinder for his Piano travels as it has 4 wheel drive
(Automatic) for those hard to climb snow covered driveways and because it has a 5,000 LB.
Towing package installed for his TWIN Yamaha TANDEM Trailer with TWIN YAMAHA VX
series Wave Runners which he just purchased. "I find this vehicle very comfortable and
utilitarian for bringing items to and from the Yacht and Marina!" -GEM
|TWO BRAND -- >NEW<
2015 YAMAHA Wave Runners with the new,
RIDE ASSIST TECHNOLOGY on a 2016
TANDEM TRAILER were purchased. These
will be pulled to all the major LAKES in New
England for exploring and fun. The 2016
will do that job well for my enjoyment.
Both of the Wave Runners do about 50
M.P.H. on the water with their superb JET
technology. I intend to put one on a hydraulic
LIFT SYSTEM off the back of my 2015
Chaparral SIGNATURE 310 Yacht, as a
TENDER to the beach after mooring, or for
access to the shore or restaurants. A quick
shuttle, if you will...lol! wink...grin!
This is my current YACHT and as you can see
from this wonderful video, it is really superb.
It features TWIN , 5.7 liter, 350 Magnum MerCruiser
Engines each pushing 300 H.P.
This is the video of the 330 model and mine is only
2 feet shorter at 31` but it is EXACTLY THE SAME
in every other way.
Enjoy the Video...and Yes!, the 40.5' is EVEN BETTER!
|BELOW is the 2016 GALEON 405 YACHT!
So, if what I have ABOVE is that nice, why would I want to go to something EVEN BIGGER? I guess, it is human nature that makes us desire a
MASTER'S DEGREE after we get the Bachelor's Degree after completing High School.
It is about seeing just how much YOU can achieve, I guess. What you can accomplish in this life. Besides...I LIKE IT!
As you will see in the VIDEO...it is pretty SPECIAL. So, it is off to the
38.5', 40.5', or 50' yacht. -GEM
The last few years have been an incredible ride!
A decision was made to sell out my home looking down
into SHENIPISIT LAKE RESERVOIR
and that was very difficult as it was a large and lovely COLONIAL
home with an In-ground GRECIAN POOL looking down a knoll into Lake Shenipsit.
It had one of the best views of the lake from what was at that time, the newest home facing
But, it limited me. It kept me living just for that home and unable to do what I
wanted to do most and that was to see the world, explore lakes, rivers and the
OCEAN. At the time, for a whole host of reasons, it was time to let it go...
return back to my SOUTH WINDSOR home that I had kept when I went to Tolland
and go for the other dreams.
I have not regretted that decision as you can see on this page I have now been able
to enjoy the pleasures of life and that which travel offers me.
I purchased the Yacht, Wave Runners, New Cars, 3 lots which are now ONE LOT
on Ashford Lake that is LAKE FRONT...and has deeded rights to
TWO PRIVATE BEACHES on that lake.
A decision was made to buy into a Marriott Vacation Club package that allows me to use over
6,000 hotels all over the WORLD for vacations each year. I can also use this to take Cruises
into Alaska or the Viking European River Cruises. As I speak, I am getting ready to go to Las
Vegas to see Celine Dion and while there, I will stay in a beautiful VILLA.
I guess, that I often choose to take the ROAD LESS TRAVELED.....and that way
leads on to way. I am better for the experiences.
IF I had a chance to do it over...I wouldn't.
I wouldn't change a single thing.
|To the left is the
2014 Chaparral Sunesta 224
my first boat. It was brand new and
I only had it for about 7 months...
or a little longer, before I traded it in
and moved up to the one below, the
2015 Chaparral SIGNATURE 310 Yacht.
It was a fine bow rider with a 5.0
MerCruiser Engine but it wasn't
a boat to sleep on or for the OCEAN!
Besides, I had higher aspirations...and
a plan to own a MAJOR YACHT in the
future. To get there...I would have to
CLIMB my way to the top.
Rung by rung...
So, when I am not teaching, I am on the RIVER or the SOUND on my Yacht
...or just on some LAKE in NEW ENGLAND on my wave runners....OR I am just..
CHILLIN' and GRILLIN' by the In-ground POOL!
I gave up a real nice view of SHENIPSIT LAKE RESERVOIR from my in-ground pool...
but, I think that the vistas and experiences that I have inherited..
have made ALL THE DIFFERENCE. I gained a YACHT... and a star to steer her by.
A Marriott Vacation Club Package to see the world...and now CELINE DION...in concert..is my life.
Lake front lots on ASHFORD LAKE...a place to build a nice LOG HOME?
And every hour or so, I get to hear the STEAM TRAIN'S WHISTLE
as people ride the refurbished STEAM train in search of a "Sentimental Journey" back to yesteryear.
as she goes by the MARINA. As for me, I sit on the boat named after the song, about the TRAIN RIDE
back in time....on my "SENTIMENTAL JOURNEY!" I listen...and I remember and a smile comes to my face.
ON the river I see swans, and nests for Eagles, Hawks
and a large grey heron often lands on my telephone pole by my boat and watches over me.
New FRIENDS are everywhere in this Marina. Unmet Strangers...with laughter and happiness in their voices.
Marina CAMPERS that will jump at the chance to HELP YOU OUT of a tough situation while trying to dock your boat.
Wide mouthed bass jump out of the water right in front of my boat.
Up river is Gillette's castle that looks down on my yacht as I pass.
Down river are Light Houses and the home of Katherine Hepburn.
Yesteryear is everywhere. And though it presses on me...I have no reason...to ever....
But, to embrace your future...is ALWAYS the right decision.
Only in letting go...can you truly move on to higher ground, safer ground...to a happier place.
Only then...can you find....the real you....that life helped get lost.
And when you sleep under the stars....and smell the campfires...and the cookouts....
you become child-like....again...and find yourself...
DREAMING ADULT DREAMS FROM A CHILD'S MIND!
The world regains its WONDER with your child-like eyes.
A butterfly is again filled with COLOR.
AND as it lands gently on the tip of your nose...you remember what a snowflake felt like as a child...
And the sound of a STEAM TRAIN...heralds in a new day....
reminds you just how wonderful...the past really was....
how wonderful every day truly is...and how lucky you are to enjoy its majesty and its mystery!
Hush,....the steam train's whistle...has something to tell me.....shhhhhh....listen....

|Mr. Moffatt is considering the
purchase of another HOME in the
Maine area close to Windham,
Maine. This would afford him access
to Portland, Maine and the wharf as
a possible dock for one of his boats,
OR...a Yacht Slip directly on
LAKE OSWEGO which is Maine's
SECOND LARGEST LAKE!
This decision should be made
in the next few months.
I would be looking for a NEWER,
Home with an In-ground HEATED
pool, with 3-4 Bedrooms and
SEVERAL ACRES of land near Rte.
302 for a quick commute to either
PORTLAND, MAINE OR
Possibly a nice , newer LOG HOME
on a hill or standard construction.
I would keep the home in S.
Windsor, Ct as it will be fully paid
off in 7-8 years! We shall see...
This will give me many options in 7
years...rent it for income...sell it and
transfer equity to a retirement fund,
etc. Pay off the Maine HOME!
At this time, FLORIDA to MAINE
is a possible option!!!
|All of my successes and all of my failures have brought me to where I am today! If I were to go back into my life and
just change one of these...remove ONE.. I would not be where I am today. I would not be who I am today! I like where I am and who I am...today.
I mean...PORTLAND< MAINE
could be a tough place to retire...
Or...somewhere on the EAST COAST
near a HUGE LAKE..Sebago/Moosehead...
or by the Atlantic Ocean.
|Gregg Moffatt plans his next acquisition as a TENDER
to and from shore, restaurants, and special coves.
|Mr. Moffatt's past home with a view from the pool of LAKE SHENIPSIT was a hard act to give up, but it has allowed us to see the world. We now enjoy rivers, lakes and VACATIONS all over the world.
|In 2017, I foresee that I will be buying another home to augment my
South Windsor Corporate Property in South Windsor, Connecticut.
This home will be somewhere on the EAST COAST either by a VERY LARGE LAKE....very large...or on the shoreline
of the EAST COAST with Marina access right on the Atlantic Ocean (Harbor then Atlantic, of course...lol).
I am considering anywhere from Portland < Maine (Sebago Lake/Portland Region) on down to West Palm Beach, Florida.
This will be a major vacation home with some land for enjoyment and if up north, snowmobiling. Stay tuned....
