Re: The future of the sailing world. Why are there so few young people cruising??
The only way I can imagine that you are spending 70k without enough left over for a boat, is because you have an expensive car and/or expensive house or even other huge debts. Or possibly just a lot of frivilous expenditures, like fast-food, restaurants, parties, consumerist goods etc.
-here in metro NY if I was making $70k per year I'd be lucky to sail my old sunfish in a pond and live in my Dad's basement. Sad but true.
Taking care of a family the old fashioned way is very expensive.
* and 2 kids in college is running about $30k/ year even though both kids got partial scholarships.
