Re: Trying to decide

I'm thinking the OP solved his sailing jones, since that is a 4 yo post. Given that he's posted on here 397 times, I'd say solved the problem nicely as well.

By the way his story and mine sound VERY similar....

I grew up on beach cats and had one again in the late 90's. It is a very athletic boat and might not be the boat to introduce your spouse to sailing. Sign up for a sailing class together . She can do basic keel boat and you can do Intermediate or Coastal cruising.
Beach cats dump easily and cruising cats cost a kings ransom.Look around... Wear your PFD!

bljones Dude, what part of "mid-life crisis" do you not understand?

Man up and talk to your wife, not us. Seriously. A boat is not the answer to a relationship, although it may be the answer to where to live after you have hopelessly screwed up a relationship. You and she have some issues you need to resolve, now.
