Re: Another newbe sank their boat
Although loosing "everything" with their boat truly sux, they have a few things going for them. First, they are in their twenties. Decades to recover. And although loosing ten grand would piss me off, they will hopefully look back on this incident with a few laughs thinking back on when 10k combined net worth was all they had. In real terms, they got off lucky. When I first read the headline I thought someone who had just retired, sold everything to buy their dream boat, and sunk it two days in with no insurance, etc.
Hopefully their next boat purchase and adventure will be with a little more wisdom and experience. Or at the very least, more luck. Leaving with only $90 in their pocket to sail the sea in a 28 footer seems ill planned from the get go.
