Re: spent my life savings on a boat, looking for work.
So let me get this straight, OP comes on here and states he sunk his money in a boat, lost his job and asks for help and by doing so he is chastised, rather vehemently, as a ne'er do well, stoner, senseless idiot by some and encouraged by a few. He comes back on a lobs a few insult bombs of his own to clarify his situation, which would have helped at the beginning and we wonder why (in other threads) the younger generation doesn't want to sail with us. I applaud him on being 19 and knowing he wants to be a world class racer, at 19 I wanted to sail but didn't know how to achieve that in landlocked Indiana. Fast forward 30 years, I've got a great job, wife, two great kids, start a business for my wife, she gets cancer, we have to close our business, I have to sell the boat, glad I didn't list all this then I'd have been blasted for not being better prepared. Steve, don't let the comments of a few deter you from your dream, at the end of the day it is your dream not theirs. Oh, by the way since that time my wife is in remission, I have bought two other boats and just picked up a 16 footer for my son as a first boat.
