Re: Why so many unused boats?

I lament on not using my own boats enough yet alone worry about others! My marina neighbor has went out in his sailboat less then a dozen times! This year after buying new sIls never used it or wouldn't sell it when I Offered. I took my sailboat to storage today one day after taking my powerboat out of the water. I justify that I only pay storage for one and with prorated discounts only pay a few hundred more in summer marina fees! But trying to keep up both and use both the same is tiring. I justify taking my three dachshunds ith me but the wife comes out less then ten times a year and hasn't stepped on the sailboat this year! So as I finish the seventh season with these boats and dinghies, kayaks and an aluminum boat that is still in the water for at least another month I can see how people can hold onto their boats! It's much easier to buy them then to sell!
