If you bought the boat before you were married you may have somehwat of a case but not after 7 years of marrige in MD.

If there is someother definition I guess my wife owns our boat. Just as I do.

I think the answer for this question is for sole ownership.....therefore you arent married. Dave
The one who changes the oil, paints the bottom and goes up the mast is the owner for the purpose of this discussion - legalities bedamned.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
