OK, a couple of practical questions:
  • How much money do you realistically have to spend -- now and over the course of the summer?
  • How much are you going to have to spend toward your wedding, honeymoon, new living arrangements, etc.
  • Is you new bride on board with this idea?
  • Is she on board with the idea that you'll be spending all of your free time fixing up the boat and not with her?
  • Is she a sailor?
  • Will this be a project you do together? If you think it will does she know that?

Just sayin'...
OMG.. I should read more closely - had no idea this was concurrent with a wedding. Wow!!

Jim I agree with almost everything you wrote, except the figuring out the money. I always had more fun, made less mistakes and did better when I didn't figure the money out.

Hey - here is one that will fit any budget -
