Plus it's fun to work on the boat and make upgrades and plans. And there are more boats in that category for a good price.

Problem with this is as most people get older they are doing less manual things like carpentry, electrical refits, hauling heavy loads, you name it... they want a boat they can jump in, start an engine and motor out and in... if a sailboat same as a powerboat... simplicity seems the theme of the day... there are many who will take up the reins after retirement and do this work but just as owning a land based home the heaviest work they might do is gardening, small crafts, and the occasional moving the patio chair around for friendly chatting with other retired friends...
