Yachts

Today I had a personal aha moment. While investigating equipment that could be used on either an RV or sailboat I realized that yachts are, in fact, RV's for rich people. Which makes RV's yachts for the rest of us. I know, it's super obvious if you give it any thought.

Hi: sclifrickson... Yachts and yachts of people feel the same way. We own a land yacht. It's a lot less expensive than the other kind. Alf

Yachts

Never owned a yacht but have had boats and still have two boats. Is it true that the two happiest days of you life are the day you buy your boat and the day you sell it? Answer. Yes
Big boy toys can overwhelm you if you get too many.

Took my boat to the dump, tied the stern to a tree and drove the trailer out from under it. 'nuf said.

Sailboats

Having owned sailboats and sailed a lot I can confirm a few things

1. If you want to know what it feels like to own a sailboat just stand in a cold shower and rip up $100 bills
2. Sailboat purchases only come in SBU's. SBU=Standard Boat Unit = $1000
3. If you think it is expensive owning a trailer, buy a sailboat

Having said all that I still love sailing and still go for a week in the Gulf Islands every year. Only difference is we charter a boat for the week.

Well at least those last couple of comments confirm that the soft sucking sound often heard around launching ramps is in fact, wallets being sucked dry. All the while I thought it was top feeding fish.

Being an ex-Harley owner, I can tell you that HD stands for "hundred dollar" as in $300 oil changes and $400 for a new tire and so on.....

I'd not thought of comparing our "Cute Little 17b" to a yacht.
I do, however, tell my friends that living in it while camping is like living in a little sailboat.

I went sailing on a buddy's boat once.
My beer kept falling over.
