I named my 90/90 "SEA GYPSY ", after reading Peter Tanbgvald's book of the same name ,where he described the departure of Wife # 3 .

Wasn't married yet , but I liked his attitude.

RE: Hobbies Boating Took From You

Being an obsessive , compulsive type my hobbies came and went in 5 to 10 year cycles, rugby, marathon running, cycling etc.
Boating, fishing and free diving have never diminished so really I havn't lost much at all.
Still love my boat and working on it, cruising as much as I can and that involves fishing and free diving (spear fishing).
Fly fishing (salt water) is an obsession that doesn't die, started in early 70s and I refer to my local fly fishing shop owner as my dealer as he supports my addiction.

Woodworking.

I've made a good amount of the furniture in our house, but I haven't done anything but a little cabinet making for the boat. With new grad kids I should be making toys.

RE: Hobbies Boating Took From You

this is very amusing, especially how so many blatantly not only admit they lost interest in one thing or another but also that they dont think their passion of yesterday is going to get much attention in the future.

my golf game surely have suffered but also general house upkeep and improvements.
i know there are full set of drawings and supply list for a new back yard deck laying around somewhere.
but heck since we spend most of our free time on the boat anyways, we would be on that deck and would probably even feel guilty for not using the (unbuilt) deck.
