A Philoshopical Question

I worked at a marina 28 yrs ago and met all kinds of dreamers sailing off in ferro-cement, strip planked, steel, and fiberglass home builts. Those were the heady days of West Sail the world.The best was a gentleman who sold off his 42'' ketch because the kids were married and busy and no crew. He took the money and had a gorgeous 26'' double ended flush deck wood sloop built.Over the companionway was a bronze plaque with the inscription, "It''s better to grab a sure thing then wish for a might of been." That is how you should approach your decision.Lots of dreamers still on the beach.I''d rather be messing around in boats.
