Buying a 1st boat

Some people may think that VIEXILE''s advice in this case is too flip, but I give him credit for pointing out that in the extreme, too much planning is to never do anything, which is often worse.

So, my modified advice:

1. DON''T rush so fast that you doom yourself to failure, poverty, and misery.

2. DON''T drag everything out so that all you do is talk, then die without experiencing your dream.

3. DO find that balance somewhere between those extremes that suits you.
