Then, after owning that boat a few years, they go out and buy a boat based on what their first boat has taught them about what they want in a boat and what is truly important to them. In many cases they keep this second boat for decades.
Well, this will be my third boat, though the first one I will live on, so then again, you may have a point.

I would agree with Casey, that many owners don't know what they want at first. I found that in motorcycles all the time.

In this case, it's mostly wrapping my head around the process so I can work with it, not fight against it.

Thanks for the feedback.
