Sure a paint job would look far better if my boat were a marina queen like most of Bobs rarely leaving the dock except for a two week summer vacation and the odd weekend cruise. Then back to work to pay for it all.
Those guys have all headed back to work from here leaving paradise free and empty for those of us who live more resourcefully .
I am a demonstration of how freely one can cruise, semi retired since my mid 20s, by following my own advice.
So if you DON'T want to have the same degree of freedom, then you definitely DON'T want to follow my way of doing things.
So tell us smack . How much full time cruising have you done since your mid 20s?

You say your way can accomplish more? Your life disproves it!.
I stand by the posts I have made above
The Bob Perry design my friend bought has 24 inch high stanchions
Okay dude, from this point, you're on your own. Quit $hitting on the low-buck carpet, mmmkay?

It's 5 o'clock somewhere:
