If you have to make the choice between a boat and a wife, that is one of the most difficult decisions you will have to make. Let me try to list the choices. Monohull or multihull, ketch (since you may be single handing) or sloop, masthead or fractional, fullkeel or finkeel. I guess that about sums it up, yea.. it's tough.

Kitchen or Galley?

My wife wanted a new kitchen. I bought our first cruising boat and told her it had her new kitchen on board. She tells me that wasn't the new kitchen she had in mind. What she should have said is that's a galley not a kitchen dumb**s. Still married and she's getting to like some aspects of sailing. Still haven't upgraded the kitchen.

If it's the Blue Water Sailing School in Ft. Lauderdale, I hope (for your sake) she didn't get Captain Joe. He's a wildman. Great sailor, great teacher, and quite a character. Loves to party. Excellent school too.

The poor me stuff won't wash. Yes you are lucky that your wife is sufficiently committed to sailing to learn the basic skills, and has the sense to do so somewhere warm. Obviously your relationship is strong enough that you allow her to leave the house despite the ribald comments of some who think that if she ever saw a bigger boat it would be better than her boat and irresistible. Yeah right. I guess you stirred some envy.
