Sail vs Power - The difference is not cost but psychology

Everything I have read over the years theorizes that sailboats and powerboats cost about the same to own over the long haul. The psychology of the matter seems more germane to the comparison of propulsion systems. Sailors are an entirely different species of water mammal from power boaters. They just happen to share the same ocean. RSKAUG demonstrates my point nicely: “Its only an academic question with me because when I find my boat I’m going to buy it regardless of where the market seems(to me)to be going.”
