"Don't EVER buy your new boat BEFORE you sell your old one"
Everybody I've ever met that DIDN'T follow that rule, and my diver who doesn't even own a boat.

Re: Best Advice

There is only ONE rule when sailing... Never create any #2. Author un known.

Re: Best Advice

Against all odds, I bought my new boat the day before I sold my old one to the second looker. To top that, I came away with a new inboard, two more feet and a net profit.

Re: Best Advice

I don't know any witty quip for it, but the best advice I have seen is to have more than adequate ground tackle for your boat.

Re: Best Advice

Another favorite quote....

"Money can't buy you happiness, but it can buy you a yacht big enough to pull right up along side it."

Or the corollary..."Money can't buy love but it can buy exotic cars and luxury yachts after which you'll be fighting love off with a stick."
