My current sailing 'experience' seems to consist of writing very large checks to a yard for very little apparent progress. Maybe we should have stuck to chartering.....

Thank you! Ha ha, I'm new to boat ownership myself, and I can say, every dime I spent on this one week charter I couldn't help but think of in the context of the maintenance or upgrades that I'd have to forfeit on my own boat - work that was good for much more than a week!

But, living in Chicago the only way to indulge my passion more than a few short months a year is to cough up the airfare and charter fees somewhere warm
