Very well said, Sir. I guess I must be a bit nuts, but I actually find boat work to be very relaxing. Our boat may not be pristine, but she still looks pretty nice for a 24 year old boat.
Generally, we schedule dedicated maintenance weekends. Maintenance is kept to a minimum when we go out, but as others have said, there is always something.
That said, the weather has been so crummy this year, that almost every weekend has been a maintenance weekend. It is hard to get motivated when it is p******g rain, cold, and no wind. Finally got out over Easter, with an encore last Sunday. It felt so-o-o good! If we get out every second weekend from here on, I'm a happy man.
