Re: can I afford to continue sailing

Can you afford NOT to continue sailing???

Face it, it's a 'decompression' sport. Relaxing and recharging yer [inner] batteries. It'll smooth ya out, make you more even-tempered and mellow and better able to deal with the day-to-day stress of work/marriage/kids whatever.

Mebbe an approach like that?

Or; do a comparison budget vs golf or bowling in a league?? I did a few Regional matches per year. It worked out to much less than a (cheaper) vacation [for one] at the Shore. That and a couple weekends away were good for my soul.
I'm sure sailing will fill the same bill!

Re: can I afford to continue sailing

I just finished reading this whole thread, it was interesting!

Too far outside of my realm of experience to make a serious comment about.

In a strange way it does remind me of this advertisement, however.

Well I for one wish you the best of luck with your situation but quite honestly no matter how this shakes out, there will be no winners.

It's always great to see an OP come back to a thread after a long absence, but you've still left many unanswered questions. Like, why is the family not involved in using the sailboat together. Clearly, wife sees no benefit to the sailboat, so who can blame her for disliking the annual slip fees?

Personally, there is no way I'd have a boat if my family was not interested in ever using it. That was sorta the whole point of getting the boat in the first place.
