Don't be sad. You are lucky. If you had stars in your eyes you would have come a cropper.

A boat is only a conveyance. That's all they have ever been. That people endow them with more is foolish IMHO.

Those old sailing ships weren't made to look beautiful. They were made to kill. Kill and enslave the world and bring wealth to greedy merchants on the back of blood.

Like the Chevvy of SloopJonBs look at all the other 1955 cars, the normal fords etc. Junked in scrap heaps where they ought to be.

Cruisers have too much sentimentality and it just wastes the budget they were going to enjoy life with.

Find a boat to suit your needs and budget and not because someone at the yacht club bar may think it looks pretty.
