They say the two best days with a boat are the day you buy it and the day you sell it.
I sold my boat last night. I don't believe the sentiment. The admiral cried. for me it was bittersweet. We had a lot of good times and a lot of memories on that boat over the last 10 years. (sure, lots of frustrations too).
At the end of the day, i spent more money on the boat than I spent FOR the boat. I certainly sold it for way less than I wanted, or even what it was worth, in all honesty. However, that is boating and boat ownership. I wanted inexpensive, I would still be canoeing.
If I take the total sum spent on the boat and all repairs and upgrades (then throw up a little) then divide by the number of weekends we used her, the price per weekend is a number we can happily live with.
(Ahhhh!!!!!....... 'Boaters Math' (a.k.a. financial denial))
Moving forward with a new chapter in a new boat.
