Re: when to get out of sailing?
Now that I think about it, I may have only gone out 10 days last year. But for me, the important thing is that for the entire year, 365 days, I was a boat owner. I worked on projects in the slip, brought home pieces to work on, did a bunch of re-wiring, took apart some major engine components, and when I wasn't doing those things I read about sailing, thought about sailing, and made plans for sailing.
I was originally going to say that the $100 per day isn't the right math to be doing. For me, the total number per year is the only thing that matters. If I can afford the total cost per year, then I'm in. Obviously I try to get out as much as possible, but even if it's not much I still get a tremendous value out of owning a boat.
As Mark said, each to his own.
