Dude, what part of "mid-life crisis" do you not understand?


Man up and talk to your wife, not us. Seriously. A boat is not the answer to a relationship, although it may be the answer to where to live after you have hopelessly screwed up a relationship. You and she have some issues you need to resolve, now.

Re: Trying to decide

I grew up on beach cats and had one again in the late 90's. It is a very athletic boat and might not be the boat to introduce your spouse to sailing. Sign up for a sailing class together . She can do basic keel boat and you can do Intermediate or Coastal cruising.
Beach cats dump easily and cruising cats cost a kings ransom.Look around... Wear your PFD!

Re: Trying to decide

I'm thinking the OP solved his sailing jones, since that is a 4 yo post. Given that he's posted on here 397 times, I'd say solved the problem nicely as well.

By the way his story and mine sound VERY similar....

"Rum Line" an S2 7.9 - cheap, fast, trailerable, and paid for.
