hellosailor nailed it...i'm betting 'buying a boat fever' has set in, brought on by a recent boat show visit perhaps. buying a boat for the sake of buying one cuz the "jones's" or brother/sister/best friend (you see where i'm going here), just bought a boat is the worst possible way to shop for one. selecting a boat based on important criteria is what needs to be considered (i know..duh)..i looked for over a year,and kept narrowing my list down,made compromises here and there, but in the end bought a boat i knew i'd be happy with and would make me smile each time i walked up to her and walked away from her, (frankly i can't imagine anything worse than buying a boat then hating yourself and it afterwards.i guess that's why the boatyards are the "land of misfit toys." anyone that has been to jabins in nappytown knows what i mean...but hey...YMMV and i could be way out in left field here.
km,what is important to you and the other part of the equation?
no evidence noted here of animals pairing up...
