RE: Will you be a boater for the rest of your life?

Nevertheless, I am curious. Will you, if you have the means, own a boat until you are unable to (or dead)? In other words--- Will a boat be in your will?

Sometimes I ponder how long I can, or better yet am willing, to keep this up. This is hard on a person if you let it. I WANT to do everything myself (or ask Bess to do it). I have no desire or means to hire someone to do all the work it takes to own a boat like ours. Therefore, I do see a sad end someday. Be it from financial or some dreadful debilitating disease that runs in the family.

Make no mistake, I love this lifestyle, but unfortunately, I see that this might have to end. Perhaps sooner... hopefully later. Just curious about the deep philosophical thoughts of our community.
