I don't know if it is true but I heard many years ago that in Japan the men worked such long hours that they left buying a new house up to their wife.
She would find the house arrange the move and text him at work the new address so he would come home to the correct house.

You are retired so don't wait. Go boat shopping.

With today's cameras you can stream your SO some video and put in an offer.
If you are really worried about it just put pending survey, pending financing and pending SO approval in the offer.

Just a thought.
We all know you are going to get the boat you want anyway.
Easy Peasy, it is a lot cheaper and faster to travel alone anyway.
If you picked up one of these
could you image how many boats you could look at if you just went driving for a couple months.

The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.
