Re: Why so many unused boats?

I've been told by a few that if they keep her tied-up, or better yet on land, they know exactly what she costs to own each month. As soon as they take her out, something breaks and maintanance goes up. I think this is a common perception.

I'm not saying I feel that way. I'm pretty sure if she's on land she serves no purpose, and only a little more while tied to the dock.
