"After I sold the 47, I got into the center-console to simplify things," Veale explains. "It took me a while to figure out there weren't many places to hide from the elements though, so I wanted to get back into something larger. From my previous ownership, I knew the Cabos were well-built, and another one seemed like a good fit for the constraints I had to work with. But I couldn't find the perfect boat, so I called Jim. We've been friends since the 1970s, and nobody knows the market better. He had sold this particular 45 new to another client, so the history was well-documented. It wasn't quite in the ultimate condition I wanted though, so after getting it surveyed and some negotiation, I bought it, thinking we'd bring it up to speed." The 45 was moved to Orange Beach in February 2017, and Greene's company, Gulfstream Services, started the restoration process.
