Re: can I afford to continue sailing
I'd find out what the real issue is? You are only getting.. half the information.
Remember that men are from mars, women are from venus. So, my translation is that she has another, in her mind, better use for that $1300. I'd find out what she has in mind for the $1300. Once you have all the information, then you can see if you can work out a solution that's mutually beneficial. Do you have a way to earn the additional $1300. ?
Or cut some personal expense to make it up?
I'm also hearing that it's YOUR boat, I didn't get the impression that she goes sailing with you. Why is that? I hear you talking about taking the kids sailing....is this a fear thing? or a financial thing? Have you had the kids on the boat? How does that go?
Like I said.... not enough information... I wouldn't do anything until I had all the facts.
