This Dang Boating Thing

Well, that wasn't very long, I'm talking about our post that we have headed for dry land and given up on trawlers (for awhile). I'm sure I'm not alone but I find it a little strange that while we are in the middle of closing on our new second home near the water I find myself surfing (the net) looking for the next boat. Am I a little crazy that I find looking for a simple day boat to have within walking distance of the house more fun and exciting then the house? I'm actually enjoying the fact that our next boat will be simpler and smaller then past three Nordhavn's and can not wait to find her. Currently we are looking at the Wasque 26 found on the east coast. Anyone have any experience with this timeless Downwast boat?

Is "This Dang Boating Thing" the reason why I am now the owner of three boats?

We own three boats at the moment too. Never intended to own a fleet. Just happens somehow. If I ever need to help evacuate Dunkirk, I'm pretty well set. (Okay, come spring we have to sell two of them. Really. No, really this time.)

John, I think you have a particularly acute case of boat-shoppers disease.
