I need to throw my hat in the ring here. I love every asoect of boat ownership. The seasons are natural divisions that, IMHO, serve in the decision making process."SO, shall I go sailing, or finish that wiring project? The weather sucks, and the heater still works, so guess I'll grab the tools, and go to work."

The opposite also holds true. "I REALLY should get the refer fixed so the Admiral quits complaining, but WOW, the wind is perfect, and it's 70 degrees out. Casting off!"

I too like to read and nap. and I have learned no matter WHAT I am doing on the boat, it is fun, and fully sanctioned.

That says it all perfectly.

If you can't be a good example, you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

Proper thing. Nuff said. This is going to be one of those famous boating quotes.
