This is hardly the first example of excessive bravado on an Internet message board. Everyone has their priorities, but sailing to me is just a hobby. I love my wife more than my boat, and my choice would be the opposite of yours, if this was all about the boat as you suggest. But something tells me there must have been other problems besides the boat.
