"Careless acquisition". I'm going to have to use that one. See I wasn't paying attention to what I was doing and before I realised it, I was married with four kids in tow. Totally
not my fault!
On the subject of the boat, "camping" is really the only affordable option I've got for a family my size. My wife loves to sail, is incredibly jealous of my twilights, and our kids are far from being able to take care of themselves. That adds up to close quarters day sailing on the lake and "camping" further out or no boat... and let's face it, who wants to confront the latter option
Thanks for the options/feedback so far. Looking a the new models now.
