I overheard the shopworn phrase in the barbershop yesterday- a guy saying how happy he was to buy his boat, and how happy he was to get rid of it.

If you really feel that way, you're not a boater at heart. Boats are expensive to buy and expensive to keep. Big boats even more so. The maintenance is never-ending and the learning curve is steep.

In the past three weeks, I've spent time on five different vessels, from a canoe to a 43 footer, and I've enjoyed them all. I might eventually downsize, due to health or finances, but I would not be happy about parting with any of my boats.
