Re: Apparently I'm not meant to have a boat...

Lots of good advice above (except going with an outboard). Calmly assess exactly what is wrong and do it yourself. Look at it as an opportunity to get to know the boat. In the long run, if you have to depend on marinas and $80/hr help, it will make owning a boat too expensive. Part of owning a boat for us who cannot afford servants is learning how to fix it.
