Where should I spend the next $500 ? or my time. I know B.O.A.T. bring out another thousand. I will but lets just look at half of it. I will get around to spending more. I am sure $500 is just a lunch and a cocktail for some vessels and a year is like one of my days .
I need priority a do not spend time and money on this do that 1st.
Time is an Issue I spent 2620 hours at work this does not include driving to and from then add all the other things that need to be done Church, family, cut my grass and so on.
What do I want to do ? Live on a boat. I will stop at the place in that pursuit that is beyond my comfort level or when it is no longer fun.
I have been doing the normal
things one might do in pursuit of this,
Paying off all dept. Saving more to build a kitty. Reading all kinds of books and some magazines. Joined a club. Posted and read internet , bought boats, Raced, and crewed local.
Have started to interest my wife
she took a club introduction course I have the ASA 101
1. My FJ is an old beat up Year 1967 and could use new sails $500 The FJ can sail, just not able to point enough to be race quality. A 1967 may never be It gets me on two small lakes close by set up fast. I can learn and my wife can learn with the FJ. I can keep it as is buy $500 sails or sell it.
Just bought a Catalina-22 have had it out 2 times once with my wife It is all day to get it to the ( big Lake ) . Spend more $ on it Yeah
! This happens but in small amounts regardless. Crewed last year local racing on a C-22.
2. Take more ASA classes
3. Take a charter with club members. I am not ready to bare boat alone. I like this idea #3 the least.
4. Race husband and wife.... saw some less than blissful times had by others in this endeavor . I think we could try because I do not get that glassy eyed competitive look.
5. slow down ,," Rome was not built in a day." Just sail the boats when ever we get the chance Give a year to adjust and enjoy.
If you have the # I am not thinking of
Happy New Year and Kind Regards , Lou
