basically, the problem with doing so is that you are limited to boat owners who are looking to get properties that are similar to what you own, and have a boat that is what you are willing to settle for. IMHO, you're far better off selling the properties and then going shopping for the boat you want, since you'll have far more choices of boats to purchase, as well as far better leverage on getting a good price on it. Trying to do a swap or barter is basically stupid and a waste of time, as it really limits your ability to negotiate on price and the selection of boats you can choose from.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
