Some have reacted pretty harshly to this statement, which I do not intend to do.

I think it is very wise to detail a realistic cost of ownership and determine if it fits within one's budget.

However, I've never known anyone to use it to determine whether they are willing to commit to the cost of ownership at all. That's always long committed by this stage and they're only determining how much cost they can endure and whether a particular boat is within reach.

There does seem to be some sign of waffling. Maybe rent for a season and find out?

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
