Interesting how people have different opinions on what the OP might be losing sleep over. Projecting our own fears onto him perhaps?

I can understand your concerns fully. My wife and I just bought a 1987 41' President that needs love and attention. We have both had boats all our lives, but this is our first boat with complex systems (at least to me). I do lay awake at night thinking what have I done, what can I fix, and I can't wait to go cruising. What helps me first and foremost is that I take the long view. No one is breathing down my back to fix, repair, or otherwise, perform a miracle. I am very fortunate to have an experienced captain that uses the Socratic method in helping me learn about my vessel. This is invaluable to me. And lastly (for now), this is a relationship, and it takes time, understanding, and patience. Breathe and relax. There are good days, there are challenging days, and then there are the days that make it all worthwhile.
