Dear Mike, you know all that "literature" you get when you buy a new car-- yea, the stuff extolling the virtues of the purchase you just made -- it is all intentionally designed to counter that universal "OMG, what have I just done" that comes whenever we make a big purchase. I think it is called "cognitive dissonance" but whatever the term it is as natural as wedding jitters. I look forward to hearing from you after your first and then first couple of sails when your response is more "Wow, what a brilliant purchase that was!"
Vicariously looking forward to September, Jay
