Re: can I afford to continue sailing

It's a trailer sailer...Find a marina you can leave it stored on land with the mast up...Then you just have to "load and launch" when you get to the marina...Anchor out whenever practical or possible (it's more fun than sitting in a slip) and cook on board...

I have my boat (26') on a trailer on Superior right next to the Apostle Island National park system ....

$80 a month on land is my major expence (4-5 month season) ...with a couple $30 transient slips from time to time just to emerse in the local flair... Less than half what your paying now and no worries bout sinking at the slip, getting hit by neighbors or trashed on the dock from surge waves....

But like most here, I don't think money is the real issue...need to find out what's really up with your lady...
