Welcome to our web page
We purchased Indulgence in the Spring of 2006 from Jayne Merrick.  Tragically,
her husband Ed Merrick passed away on Saturday, August 6th 2005 after falling ill
while aboard Indulgence the day before while nearing the end of their July cruise.  
Ed and Jayne meticulously maintained the boat, and according to the broker,
planned to take Indulgence to the islands when Ed retired.  Many of those in the
424 community fondly remember Ed and his help on technical matters.  Given
this history and the fact that we have yet to change the name of a boat we owned,
we decided to keep the name.
Prior to Ed and Jayne purchasing her in 1997, she was the "Two III's".  She was owned by two
men who lived aboard her in Boston Harbor and sailed her very little.  Prior to that, she was
"Seaquel" from Rhode Island.  Interestingly enough, the same broker handled the listing for the
last three owners:  John Procter of
Lawson Yachts

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped
by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let
the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most
important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow
already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
