:Hey, sounds like every staff meeting I've ever suffered through.  Is it
:really true that the second happiest day in a boat owner's life is the
:day he buys it -- and the happiest is the day he sells it?  :o)

    The first time a newly minted boat owner actually SAILS his vessel
    will either be the happiest day of his life or the most agonizing,
    and he will then either keep the boat for a long time or he will
    sell it immediately.

    Other then that the sticker shock from the maintainance requirements
    (boats being money sinks) can become an issue.  A lot of more casual
    sailors go for smaller non-ocean-going trialerable boats which have
    very low maintainance requirements.

    But, hell, I've been sailing since I was 7 years old so I guess I'm in
    the former category.
