It seems like all we use ours for lately is to take up any free time we have. Right now it's on the hard undergoing phase II of the rebuild. All new decks. Not the scope of repairs we went through last year, though. Hopefully it'll be done by summers end then we're going to do overnighters/weekends this fall, a little more extended cruising of the Chesapeake ,NC & perhaps Delaware/South Jersey next year. Our primary goal will be north Florida for the winter of 2020. We chose this boat because it's a good fit for a cruising couple with room to entertain friends for a day. Plus it's budget friendly.

I hear you. I would say I spend 50% of my free time "working" on mine and sometimes getting frustrated until I look up what a new boat in this size would cost.. Then it's worth my time.
