Re: When is it time to sell the boat?

The OP answers itself. However, I hate reading that one gives up something they love for something else they love. Love is fragile and in weaker moments, things like this become cancerous. I don't mean to be overly dramatic. A break for a while, because your family is more important, is just fine. Perhaps you'll get back to it one day.

Has to be the OP's call. I'd consider whether there is a local lake and get a small dinghy or day sailor. A cooler and some apps for an evening sail with your wife can be very nice, for both. Like you, we are always trying to get to another port. When the opportunity presents itself to do 3 kts, in a light breeze, with no where to go and all day to get there, its incredibly relaxing. Perhaps move closer to the lake, do you have to be 90 mins away?
