I said on here some time ago that I was giving up sailing and buying a power boat. That part is done: we have a 1999 Formula 330 SS which we love. Does 40 knots without breaking a sweat, and the family, which has no interest in sailing, loves it. But: the marina where we keep the sailboat has recently changed policy, and we are now allowed to rent two slips. That means that we will be keeping the sailboat, and I'll have the best of both worlds. You do win, sometimes, whether you deserve it or not.
