We get it Brent, we really, really do - you don't like nice stuff.
It's good that you are satisfied with your minimalist, utilitarian lifestyle. I think we all strive to be satisfied with our lives.
Some, or most of us require more than you do in order to be satisfied - more beauty in our lives and possessions, more satisfaction and accomplishment from our life's work, more family relationships etc. etc.
Not everyone out there aspires to the life of a minimalist loner, very few do in fact.
P.S. I don't see any reason why one of your boats couldn't look about as good as that Waterline - it doesn't take any more work to make something look good as to make it look ugly or plain - all it takes is some artistry and the will.
