You know you'd let Fred break the boom on your boat...as long as he wasn't hurt doing it... A lot of tough talk, but you're a marshmallow when it comes to your kids... total pushover...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

CD right...

well..they are the blood of my blood....and they are so cute...I forgive them anything....

So...... kids excluded.....

I had a very collectible 1970 red Alfa Romeo Spider, (I never drove it so it woulnd't get damaged, 15000 Km imaculate, never painted etc.) and one day the door lock jammed...I took the panel appart and was fixing it...Fred was playing around in thr garage, he was maybe 1 1/2 years old maybe 2...I left for a while, and when I returned, Fred was hammering the door of the car with the sharp end of a hammer...he dented the door so much....

I remember smiling and picking him up....he said "dada I fix car"!!! and hugged me....

Never forget that...the car is gone...Fred is here....I love my family...more than my boat...

so family can break...

I had thought about the 'buy it and put it in charter' thing. Looked into the deal that the Moorings runs for them, etc. It was the only way i'd be able to buy a 35+ foot boat anytime soon. And then i went out on a charter for the first time. I personally (no really! ) didn't contribute to the premature aging of the boat i was on (honest, i was sooooo paranoid! ), but it wasn't that nice for only 6 months old. The first afternoon out we snorkeled around the keel counting dings. And the 3 year old boats at the charter base i wouldn't buy for parts! They'll make someone a nice floating condo somewhere after their 5 or so years in the charter fleet, but wouldn't be safe to take out of the harbor without putting more money into them than they probable cost when new. It's a hard life those boats have, used more in a year than many others are in their lifetime. I think PamlicoT said it best (and most graphically! ) I'll wait for the right 'girl' to come along and hope i can still get it up (the mainsail, that is...... )

(edit: also most of the designs they take for charter aren't what a cruising couple would want - ooops someone already pointed that out)

Uh, we have 6 charter boats in the next dock over and I see them daily headed out and coming in............you do not want to buy a boat for your personal use and then put it in a charter program.........trust me, if some of these clowns thought there was a chance to make the drive thru at Burger King, they'd go for it

The only way I would use a charter program would be if I had another primary boat for my personal use and used the program to offset the maintanence for it

Yeah, sorry-a general rule of thumb is to not rent out anything you care about, muchless are emotional about.
