Put another way; I decided that for me, half of a boat, would not float.

wow.. guys.. I'm not dying! LOL I'll never leave Sailnet either! Paul thank you for the compliments too!
I've really been making lots of sawdust the last few days and I'm feeling better about things. Apparently woodworking is good therapy!

talk about the land of the free, the freedom part has been slowly slipping away since the day the declaration of independence was signed. Every year we put 5000 new laws on the books with almost none removed each of which seems harmless but each in fact chips away at our individual freedom. All done to use for our own good, so they say.

Well I think this is the root. I think since it will not cost a lot more to keep the boat for the year, keep at it. You may just be hitting a lull in your enthusiasm. I for one would miss you around here as I think you makes some excellent posts. You do seem to have a real passion for sailing, perhaps it was just a bad season? Your area seemed to have a rough season as there were a lot of posts of floating debris, and there was some strange weather. Seems to me too that it may not really be cost but a waning of interest. I do have to say I am very impressed with your wood work, perhaps that is taking over the sailing bug? May just be temporary, may be permanent. Only time will tell but give it the fair chance of time, as you have a nice boat and I know you would miss her.

It all comes down to friends wanting to help defray the costs of them using or going on your boat. I'm sure most of us don't think our friends are out to get us when we go on a "3 hour tour" but yes.. it's possible for anyone to "turn" on you. boat, car, hell even sitting down to dinner and someone chokes on a chicken bone!

What the heck... Sometimes it is best just to move on. Interest change, we change, and life moves on. Sometimes it's best to leave your boyfriend/girlfriend, wife, job, house, apartment, boat, or town you live in. But your dog, never leave your dog....

Thoroughly agree but once upon a time such informal arrangements were not of any concern for the authorities. I'm talking about talking on one or two people as paying crew or even students. If you started a regular tour operation in an out of survvey vessel and without the correct licenses then on your own head be it though twenty, thirty years back even operations of that type were often ignored .... unless the boat sank.
