Be VERY careful of your funds and your labor when involved in this boat girlgoessailing. I have seen more than one relationship hit the rocks and the fellow, well, he owns the boat. It says so on the title.

The girl works hard, makes the boat "their home to sail the Caribbean" and then when the pressure is on and things are nearing completion the man gets scared (my theory) and picks a multitude of fights with worker girl. She leaves.

He settles down now that expectations and all those promises he made are gone... then he finds the Princess Babe who takes the place of his former partner.

Of course that relationship fails too -- Princess doesn't want to actually break her nails or anything like that! ...

So owner wishes for original gal. In the meantime, she's moved on. Less money but far wiser.

Be very careful. Of course one hopes this doesn't happen to you. Just be aware that statistically, you're in a precarious position. I do wish you well.
