If you have no love for your craft, and no relationship with her, then don't be surprised when she feels no compunction to bear her burden.
There is nothing wrong with falling in love with a boat, and understanding the soul of the craft- it's ignoring her faults and failing to take care of her, and ignoring the costs going in that lead to the breakup of the relationship...
just like with anything that can, and will, capture your heart. conveyance indeed.
