This was the post i was referring to. If this was a tongue-in-cheek then please accept my apologies. I have not followed the 500 thread because it is absurd.

Down here, not every boat has ac. But those that do not have a hard time in the summer. I would love to poll them against wanting ac versus not. They live without it because they have no other choice.

If i offended you i apologize. I just saw this thread as a great opportunity to discuss how people cruise and reality versus some bs by those who have never done it or have not done it long. Jaysus, this is our lives. I am giving our real-world numbers. Suddenly i feel like all eyes are criticizing me and i feel like you guys are thinking we are rich. I have seen rich in my previous life. That ain't us. We are just a middle class family which has committed itself boating from the beginning. Not everyone will agree with us. Not everyone will do it as we have or should. But there are some things which we hold strong to from experience that I wish others would at least take into consideration versus dismissing out of hand.
