Re: Inconvenient Bahama sailing

So you like to vacation in the Bahamas and you're spending four or five grand a year in order to do that on a boat comparable to camping in the mud. Presumably alone and without the wife?

Dump the boat, four or five grand a year should be able to buy you some charter time on something way nicer. It really doesn't sound like the boat is worth much, maybe you can "donate" it to some group and reserve the right to borrow it back for a week twice a year. But from what you say, and not knowing how much time you spend on it, it sounds like you're just throwing good money after bad at this point. Sometimes, cutting the losses is all you can do.
