So now you are ready for the next phase. This is one which we have all been though. It is the period in between when you sell your boat and when you realize that you have to have a boat. It is a period characterized by depression, excess drinking, secretly looking at boats online, and finally (after a few drinks) informing your better half that you are addicted.

Best and second best day over with. Now you could either do the third best day, or, you could do the Best day over again, but that would mean no outside wood and a bigger boat....yes, a much bigger boat.

Currently stuck in a bit of analysis paralysis. As we're approaching retirement we've been considering where we want to live. The Chesapeake Bay is right outside my living room window now, but we're in a townhouse community. If we stay here I want another heavy cruiser of some sort. I don't really like being out on the Bay in an open boat baking in the sun.

I want some land but our finances aren't going to provide for 10 acres and living right on the Bay. So we may end up in the Carolina's, TN, KY maybe even TX. In which case lake side living is more in the cards. If that's where we end up then I'll be looking at something like this:

Pretty much in the same boat (no pun intended). We are retired but decided we wanted to move elsewhere so the boat went on the market and we got a contract on it last week. Now, if we could only get a contract on the house....
