I love my Martin, it follows me everywhere. It's small (parlor size). I chord crunch mostly. I don't leave it on the boat for fear I'll ruin it. It's not a "true" Martin in the traditional sense, but it's the nicest I've owned.

I play modern country stuff, but mostly of classic rock... I try not to foist my voice, or guitar playing onto anyone. Most people are at the dock to relax. If music ain't your thing it can grate on you (as likely my voice does too).

Alcohol tends to curb my better judgement, and I've been known to "interrupt" silence with my poor quality tunes.
Great post! I have the same issue with vocals. My wife has the voice of an angel. I actually think she could be pro. Me on the other hand, well, it ain't pretty. Course, a few drinks and it doesn't matter (feeding others drinks, that is)
