Re: A philosophical divide?

I enjoy the initial fixing up and renovation of old boats but after that stage, don't spend a lot of time making things shiny to impress other people. Once a boat is in good sailing shape, would rather be on the water than sitting dockside fussing with brightwork. I really appreciate seeing boats in "Bristol" condition but have never had the desire or patience to maintain a boat that meticulously. Different strokes...
