Feeling a little better about it all. Spent a good week aboard with crew, got underway, pleased with her performance.
Now I'm just feeling bad that I have a boat in sunny Florida while I'm in frozen NY.
Oh, yeah, I'm still buying stuff.

The variation I heard is that "owning a boat is like standing in a cold shower ripping up 100 dollar bills."

No peanut butter sandwiches but accounts for inflation.

Let me know when you get to NY and I'll tell you a story about spending large amounts of money post purchase. It will make you think you havn't spent anything. I don't wanna jinx your trip though.

That works too, we can reserve the $20 dollar version for smaller boats.

I am getting ready to put the jon boat in for my son and his GF this weekend and it has already cost me $150, thats a 7.5 minute cold shower and I am out of peanut butter!

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

So I needed to put the money into it but the flounder ain't bitin' the shrimp aren't jumpin and even if they were its to freakin cold so it just ticks me off to have to spend money on it now. Next it is a new prop, damn crab pots!

Think of it this way.....

You were gonna do SOMETHING with that money anyway, might as well spend it on something that won't bitch!

Poverty motivates me in ways prosperity never could.

LOL.
I've dreamed of a cruising boat all my life, I finally own one. While the spending dismays me, I smile even looking at her picture. This could be love.
