Re: Don't have to be rich to sail

I would say that people who say stuff like, you must be rich to have a boat . Those people are not boat people, but even worse they are jealous . Some yrs. ago I bought a Porsche, it was a older 911 Targa . It was restored and looked nice but still I only paid 10k for it . You should of heard the howls from people . They went like, what are you trying to prove with a car like that! And oh you must be rich , and my favorite, are you having a mid life crisis ?! I know that was a car story but thanks for letting me rant about that . On the boating side I still get pretty much the same thoughtless comments . And lastly I would not try to convince or explain to people that they could afford a boat, I mean just the ones that make rude comments like you must be rich . On the other side of the coin , does anyone get this one ? You are cheap because you own a sail boat and air is free .
