Giu, You are exceptional,
I see boats with hired crews getting neglected. the people in my area that are always on their boats and always trying to improve their boats are the ones that seem to have a bigger percentage of their worth tied up in the boat. the other side of this is people with no visible means of support living in derelict boats to find shelter.
That's just my observation From where I sit. I'm sure It depends a lot on where your at.
One thing that doesn't change is that some people own boats because they truly love boats and love being on the water and some people own them because they think it gives them more stature.

All boats are sinking it's just a matter of how fast.
