Talking Happy wife = nicer boat

I'm so amused. I finally bought a boat - a Columbia 26K - which is not the boat I wanted, but it was the boat I could afford at the time.

My wife was very apprehensive about sailing (until I took her out). She was immediately in love. I had bought her sailing lessons for Christmas, and she's off taking the course right now. Last night she called and said, "I love this, it's perfect, I want to do more, lots more. We need to look for a bigger, more capable boat."

Oh. Oh. Twist my arm. Force me to look for a nicer boat.

I'm very amused.

Cheers!

Well, there is a Tayana for sale on this board. It is pretty. It is very capapble. Not sure about the PO as I have seen pictures that he is a cross-dresser... but other than that, your wife would be very happy!!

The cross-dresser bit doesn't bother me. Might be a tad outside my price range. 'Course, he does have it listed as "best offer."

You're very lucky, better take care of that gal. My wife would trade the sailboat for a cushy stinkpot in a heartbeat.

One of the unexpected joys of my life is that my wife enjoys sailing nearly as much as I do.
