Re: Sailboat Cost of Ownership

Brent, pretty impressive commitment to keeping costs down. While I still spend more the $100 per year on cleaning products and polish and there are no 35mm reusable shaft zincs lying around here, I see you are doing this differently.

However, most can't, both due to lack of desire and availability of opportunity. Chicago doesn't have a tide to beach your boat.

Re: Sailboat Cost of Ownership

Have you noticed the increase in armored cars following hearses lately? Neither have I. The greatest fear I have is to die healthy, with money in the bank, and things to do on my “Bucket List”.

This is true wisdom!!!




Hey, and the OP is running a business with a young family. Sounds like the plan is to pay others to do the work. That can be a good decision when you run a business because time spent in the business is often worth more per hour than even expensive yard bills. Given this, the OP's estimates of costs are pretty darn good (yea less diesel, but the rest is pretty good).

We just had the perfect beam reach returning from Martha's Vineyard this AM. The boat was screaming, we were smiling, the spray was flying, knot log was pegged... This life provides a limited set of these perfect moments.

Buy the boat and sail on!

Depends on if they wash before they screw and how they look right?

It is good to learn from your mistakes, but much better to learn from the mistakes of others...
